root: root

The root grammatical relation points to the root of the sentence. A fake node ROOT is used as the governor. The ROOT node is indexed with 0, since the indexing of real words in the sentence starts at 1. There should only be one node with the root dependency relation in every tree.

ROOT J' aime les frites . \n I love French fries .
root(ROOT, aime)
ROOT Il est grand . \n He is tall .
root(ROOT, grand)

Some examples from UD_French-Spoken:

ROOT ils ont discuté \n they chatted
ROOT tu prends la grande rue \n you take the big street
