UD for Turkish

This is a work-in-progress overview of the UD annotation for Turkish.

Unfortunately, different treebanks follow (slightly) different annotation guidelines, and at present (as of v2.4) multiple uncoordinated attempts of correction efforts are known.

Morphology

Turkish has a rich inflectional and derivational morphology. Some of the morphological phenomena are not satisfactorily annotated as of UD v2. This includes some missing feature-value pairs, e.g., ‘reflexive voice’ which is marked using language specific value Voice=Rfl. Another open issue is multiple values for certain UD morphological features. For example, a gelemeselerdi “if they were not able to come_ expresses two different modalities, requiring assigning both Pot and Cnd to the Mood feature. Currently these multiple features are expressed by concatenating the values together in alphabetic order, resulting in feature-value pairs like Mood=CndPot. Besides Mood, Voice may also have multiple values.
