This paper reports on one of the first steps in building a very large annotated database of American English. We present and discuss the results of an experiment comparing manual part-of-speech tagging with manual verification and correction of automatic stochastic tagging. The experiment shows that correcting is superior to tagging with respect to speed, consistency and accuracy.
