Table 5 

Most frequent Brown cluster phrase dependencies extracted from DE→EN data, shown with their counts. As in Table 4, we only show those in which one phrase has at least two tokens and neither phrase is entirely punctuation. Each cluster is shown as a set of words large enough to cover 95% of the token counts in the cluster, up to a maximum of four words. It is characteristic of Brown clustering that very frequent tokens (e.g., function words) often receive their own clusters.
