A search tool for parallel treebanks


Volk, M; Lundborg, J; Mettler, M (2007). A search tool for parallel treebanks. In: ACL Workshop on Linguistic Annotation, Prague, 2007 - 2007.

Abstract

This paper describes a tool for aligning and searching parallel treebanks. Such treebanks are a new type of parallel corpora that come with syntactic annotation on both languages plus sub-sentential alignment. Our tool allows the visualization of tree pairs and the comfortable annotation of word and phrase alignments. It also allows monolingual and bilingual searches including the specification of alignment constraints. We show that the TIGER-Search query language can easily be combined with such alignment constraints to obtain a powerful cross-lingual query language.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
