The web service is a tool which takes text as input and returns a list of tokens. The tokens can be orthographical words, numerals and punctuation marks. The tokeniser was designed to work on Maltese texts. The download for this resource only contains the narrative description in a Word file.
The WSDL link is http://metanet4u.research.um.edu.mt/services/MtTokeniser?wsdl.

• tokenTags This is a boolean variable. If tokenTags is true than the output tokens will be wrapped in tags (ex: <token> tagged_text </token>). If false, the token will have no tags.
• separator This is a string which will be used to separate one token from another in the output string.
