expl: expletive

Note that in version 2.7, expletives are not annotated consistently in the French treebanks.

The table below describes the usage of expl and its sub relations across French treebanks:

  UD_French-GSD UD_French-Sequoia UD_French-FQB UD_French-PUD UD_French-ParTUT UD_French-FTB UD_French-Spoken
expl =========== =========== =========== =========== 212 [0.74%] 4112 [0.72%] ===========
expl:comp =========== 286 [0.41%] 176 [0.73%] 28 [0.11%] =========== =========== ===========
expl:pass 760 [0.19%] 57 [0.08%] =========== =========== =========== =========== ===========
expl:subj 898 [0.22%] 241 [0.34%] 331 [1.37%] 83 [0.34%] =========== =========== 366 [1.04%]

Only UD_French-ParTUT and UD_French-FTB use the expl relations without subtype.

Other treebanks use the subtypes: expl:comp, expl:pass and expl:subj.
