The syntactic annotation in the French UD treebank follows the general guidelines but adds two language-specific relations:
- acl:relcl for relative clauses
- nmod:poss for possessive
The syntactic annotation has been automatically converted from the Google data originally annotated with the Google universal annotation scheme. The following phenomena are known to deviate from the general UD guidelines and will be fixed in future versions:
The remnant analysis of ellipsis, as well as the vocative, goeswith, reparandum, dislocated and list analyses have not been fully implemented.
Some of the expl relations are not annotated consistently in the French treebank data.
