mark: marker

In Irish the mark label is used for infinitive markers and for subordinate conjunctions. Note that subordinate conjunctions are attached to the head of the complement clause (not the matrix clause as is the case in the Irish Dependency Treebank). In Irish, we also have a language sub-type label mark:prt.

Examples

Subordinate conjunctions

Note that the coordinating conjunction agus (‘and’) may function as a subordinating conjunction when it is used to introduce a subordinating clause usually headed by a noun, as shown in the example below. In cases such as this one, agus is labelled mark.

Sa bhliain san ghaibh na Turcaigh François de Vic agus é ar thuras go dtí Vín. `The Turkish Army apprehended François de Vic while he was on a trip to Vienna.’
