Abstract

This paper presents the syntactic annotation level of a project aimed at providing a small dialog corpus with multiple levels of annotation. The syntactic annotation is based on dependency syntax. We outline the reasons for choosing dependency, and show the syntactic annotation for some constructions. We finish by describing the current state of the project.
