HighLighting Nouns?

I've been asked to do an analysis on a system spec provided by a customer. They've asked for an ER-Diagram as well as a breakdown of the Word Document provided.

So I was wondering that given Microsoft word has a grammar check is there any way to HighLight : Nouns?

Addiontally if there was a way to HighLight Adjectives or Verbs it would also help. I've already broken down the document myself but having Word highlight them would allow me to confirm I have selected the important data.

Unfortunately Word's object model (that we can program against) does not break down into nouns and verbs. I can see where it would be a nice tool to have.

You could run the document through a concordance program to isolate all words. Some can generate a list of the words as well. A sorted list of all words in a document isn't usually very large, so you can identify the word types manually.
