Dear Martin (cc TEI-L),
Thank you for the scarily quick response!

I may not have explained the situation clearly, but the problem isn't so much the POS information as representing the syntactic (e.g., subject, object) and thematic (e.g, agent, patient) properties and relationships. POS is part of that story, since it determines to some extent the applicable categories (e.g., a finite verb form isn't going to be an agent), but I also need some guidance in determining what a sentence would look like that was marked up in TEI to include morphological, syntactic, and thematic information?
