Questions, comments? General annotation questions (either Galician-specific or cross-linguistic) can be raised in the main UD issue tracker. You can report bugs in this treebank in the treebank-specific issue tracker on Github. If you want to collaborate, please contact [marcos • garcia • gonzalez (æt) usc • gal]. Development of the treebank happens outside the UD repository. If there are bugs, either the original data source or the conversion procedure must be fixed. Do not submit pull requests against the UD repository.

The Galician-TreeGal is a treebank for Galician developed at LyS Group (Universidade da Coruña) and at CiTIUS (Universidade de Santiago de Compostela).

The resource derives from a subset (called xeral) of the XIADA corpus (v2.6), created at the Centro Ramón Piñeiro para a Investigación en Humanidades (http://corpus.cirp.es/xiada/).

All the information except the syntactic one was semi-automatically converted to UD from the original resource. The dependency labels were assigned using cross-lingual parsing techniques, and then manually corrected by a linguist (see the references for more information). At the end of this process, several corrections were carried out in order to agree with the UD guidelines.

Galician-TreeGal v0.42 contains 1000 sentences of the xeral corpus (~25k tokens), and it is divided 60-40 splits (train-test).
