Title Poly-GrETEL: Cross-Lingual Example-based Querying of Syntactic Constructions
Authors Liesbeth Augustinus, Vincent Vandeghinste and Tom Vanallemeersch
Abstract We present Poly-GrETEL, an online tool which enables syntactic querying in parallel treebanks, based on the monolingual GrETEL environment. We provide online access to the Europarl parallel treebank for Dutch and English, allowing users to query the treebank using either an XPath expression or an example sentence in order to look for similar constructions. We provide automatic alignments between the nodes. By combining example-based query functionality with node alignments, we limit the need for users to be familiar with the query language and the structure of the trees in the source and target language, thus facilitating the use of parallel corpora for comparative linguistics and translation studies.
Topics Corpus (Creation, Annotation, etc.), Grammar and Syntax, Multilinguality
