The multifunctional tool this paper presents has been developed within theTAGFACTproject, a project that aims to automate the annotation of factuality –understood as the degree ofcommitment with which the writer presents situations– in Spanish journalistic texts. In whatfollows, the tool, which allows the compilation of the texts and the manual annotation ofpredicates, is described. The corpus created using it has been extracted in groups of three pieces of
news covering the same event from newspapers with different ideologies (left wing, right wingand centrist). It is made up of 176 different pieces of news, containing 1,359 sentences and46,947 words. The tool has been used so far to manually annotate a section of the ‘Gold Standard’(approximately 10,000 words). It has proved to be versatile in that it allows for both the creationand management of corpora and corpus annotation, using any tags the user wants depending on thepurpose of each corpus.
