What is a tagger?

In general, tagging is the process of making up some sort of elements with supplementary information. However, in the context of natural language processing, tagging usually refers to part-of-speech tagging (POS tagging or POST) that marks up words with their roles (i.e., parts of speech) in sentences. More specifically, the task of a tagger is to identify words in a text as nouns, adjectives, verbs, etc.
