  • Hamburg Dependency Treebank
    http://hdl.handle.net/11022/0000-0000-7FC7-2

    The Hamburg Dependency Treebank is to our knowledge the largest dependency treebank available (at the date of its publication). It consists of genuine dependency annotations, i.e. they have not been transformed from phrase structures. The sentences were all sourced from the German news site heise.de, from articles published between 1996 and 2001. The mapping from sentences to articles and authors is retained, allowing, e.g. analysis of individual style. The creation of the treebank through manual annotation was largely interleaved with the creation of a standard for morphologically and syntactically annotating sentences as well as a constraint-based parser.
