punct: punctuation

This is used for any piece of punctuation in a clause, regardless of its function. The punctuation mark is attached to the head of the phrase or clause to which it belongs unless this introduces a non-projective dependency. More discussion on punctuation can be found on the universal dependency page (u-dep/punct).

Example

Tá an méid sin suimiúil a d’ inis tú dom , a dúirt sé . What you have told me is interesting , he said to me.

' Tá an méid sin suimiúil a d' inis tú dom , ' a dúirt sé . \n ' Is the amount DEM interesting [] [] told you to_me , ' [] said he .
