The grammatical analysis and description of spoken language of children with impaired hearing is time-consuming, but has important implications for their habilitation and educational management. Word-tagging programs have achieved high levels of accuracy with text and adult spoken language. This paper investigates the accuracy of one automatic word tagger (AUTASYS 3.0 developed for the International Corpus of English project, ICE) on a small corpus of spoken language samples from children using a cochlear implant. The accuracy of the tagging and the usefulness of the results in comparison with more conventional analyses are discussed.
