Questions, comments? General annotation questions (either Komi Zyrian-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 [nikotapiopartanen (æt) gmail • com]. Development of the treebank happens directly in the UD repository, so you may submit bug fixes as pull requests against the dev branch.

This treebank consists of dialectal transcriptions of spoken Komi-Zyrian. The current texts are short recorded segments from different areas where the Iźva dialect of Komi language is spoken.

The materials have been collected within the Iźva Komi Documentation Project, funded by Kone Foundation in 2014-2016, and archived in The Language Archive. The transcriptions have been done by native speakers, and the orthographic transcription system, although matching the Komi orthography where applicable, is primarily phonemic. The data in this treebank represents only the northern Iźva dialect of Komi, but materials from other dialects will also be included in the future. The sent_id values match those in archived the IKDP corpus, and the + character is used to mark sentence IDs that span across multiple annotations.

The corpus contains portions of recordings made between 1959 and 2016. The parts that have been published earlier by Erik Vászolyi in the Specimina Sibirica series are reproduced here with written permission. One portion of the corpus comes from Syrjänische Texte Bd. III published by Finno-Ugrian Society, and originally translated and edited by Paula Kokkonen.

The IKDP corpus uses the treebank as one of its annotation schemes. The entire audio-visual language documentation corpus will be archived in 2021 both to The Language Archive in Nijmegen and the Language Bank of Finland. In this process, the actual linking of the treebank to the multimedia files will be revisited and clear conventions for doing this will be developed and documented.


The work was done as collaboration within the Kone Foundation-funded research project Language Documentation meets Language Technology: The Next Step in the Description of Komi and the LAKME project funded by a grant from Paris Sciences et Lettres (IDEX PSL reference ANR-10-IDEX-0001-02).
