UD English_LinES is the English half of the LinES Parallel Treebank with the original dependency annotation first automatically converted into Universal Dependencies and then partially reviewed. Its contents cover literature, an online manual and Europarl data.

UD English_LinES is the English half of the LinES Parallel Treebank with UD annotations. The majority of segments are from literature but there is also a section with online manual data and one section with Europarl data. All segments have an associated translation in the UD Swedish_LinES treebank (with the same segment index). The original dependency annotation was first automatically converted to Universal Dependencies and then partially reviewed (Ahrenberg, 2015). In January-February 2017 it was converted to UD version 2 and again reviewed for errors. With version 2.1 lemma information has been added.

The treebank is being developed continuously.


Three of the source texts were collected as part of the Linköping Translation Corpus Corpus (Merkel, 1999). The treebank was first developed in the project ‘Micro- and macro-level analysis of translations’ funded by the Swedish Research Council (Ahrenberg, 2007).
