Alignment tools for parallel treebanks


Samuelsson, Y; Volk, M (2007). Alignment tools for parallel treebanks. In: GLDV Frühjahrstagung, Tübingen, Germany, 2007 - 2007.

Abstract

This paper reports about our efforts in creating a tri-lingual parallel treebank. The focal points are consistency checking and all aspects of sub-sentential alignment. We discuss the alignment guidelines, the importance of quality checks, and special alignment problems. Then we look at alignment algorithms and alignment visualization tools and we compare our own TreeAligner with other alignment tools.
Our constituent structure treebanks contain just over 1,000 sentences and around 18,000 tokens in each 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.
