Building and querying parallel treebanks


Volk, Martin; Marek, Torsten; Samuelsson, Yvonne (2011). Building and querying parallel treebanks. Translation: Computation, Corpora, Cognition, 1(1):7-28.

Abstract

This paper describes our work on building a trilingual parallel treebank. We have annotated constituent structure trees from three text genres (a philosophy novel, economy reports and a technical user manual). Our parallel treebank includes word and phrase alignments. The alignment information was manually checked using a graphical tool that allows the annotator to view a pair of trees from parallel sentences. This tool comes with a powerful search facility which supersedes the expressivity of previous popular treebank query engines.
