cc: coordinating conjunction

The cc label marks the relation between the last conjunct of a coordinated phrase and its coordinating conjunction. In Irish, a coordinating conjunction takes the form of agus “and”, “or”, “than”. UD takes the first conjunct as the head of a coordinated phrase. (Note that this differs from the Irish Dependency Treebank structure, which follows LFG theory and the coordinating conjunction is the head of the cooordinated phrase.)

Examples
