Title Because Size Does Matter: The Hamburg Dependency Treebank
Authors Kilian A. Foth, Arne Köhn, Niels Beuck and Wolfgang Menzel
Abstract We present the Hamburg Dependency Treebank (HDT), which to our knowledge is the largest dependency treebank currently available. It consists of genuine dependency annotations, i. e. they have not been transformed from phrase structures. We explore characteristics of the treebank and compare it against others. To exemplify the benefit of large dependency treebanks, we evaluate different parsers on the HDT. In addition, a set of tools will be described which help working with and searching in the treebank.
Topics Grammar and Syntax, Parsing
