Human judgements in parallel treebank alignment


Volk, M; Marek, T; Samuelsson, Y (2008). Human judgements in parallel treebank alignment. In: COLING Workshop on Human Judgements in Computational Linguistics, Manchester, UK, 23 August 2008 - 23 August 2008.

Abstract

We have built a parallel treebank that includes word and phrase alignment. The alignment information was manually
checked using a graphical tool that allows the annotator to view a pair of trees from parallel sentences. We found the
compilation of clear alignment guidelines to be a difficult task. However, experiments with a group of students have shown that we are on the right track with up to 89% overlap between the student annotation and our own. At the same time these experiments have helped us to pin-point the weaknesses in the guidelines, many of which concerned unclear rules related to differences in grammatical forms between the languages.
