LGTagger is an open-source Part-of-speech tagger that also recognizes Multiword units.
It is based on Conditional Random Fields (CRF) and large-coverage lexical resources. The lexical resources can be composed of morphosyntactic dictionaries (including simple and compound words) and strongly lexicalized local grammars. It presently works for French.

LGExtract is an open-source software devoted to converting Lexicon-Grammar
tables (M. Gross 1975) into an XML-structured syntactic lexicon. It is implemented in Java. It has been used to generate the LGLex syntactic lexicon of simple verbs, verbal nouns, fixed expressions and adverbials in French.
