The Lithuanian dependency treebank ALKSNIS v3.0 (Vytautas Magnus University).

This is a conversion of the ALKSNIS treebank to Universal Dependencies. The original treebank was annotated in a style derived from the Prague Dependency Treebank of Czech. The original treebank is available at https://github.com/Semantika2/Alksnis-v.3.0. ALKSNIS v2.1 is published in the CLARIN LT repository at http://hdl.handle.net/20.500.11821/10. (Some users experience DNS errors when trying to access the repository; configuring the client machine to use as the DNS server may help. See also http://clarin-lt.lt/?page_id=86.)

ALKSNIS v3 consists of 3,643 syntactically annotated sentences. Each node of a tree corresponds to a word, a punctuation mark or other text element (symbol, digit etc.) within a sentence. The following information is presented for each node: 1) a used form; 2) a lemma; 3) a morphology tag, and 4) a syntactic function (subject, object, etc.). Dependencies are shown by links between words.

The morphology tag set Jablonskis is used since ALKSNIS v2.2 and in the XPOS column of the UD conversion. This is a change from ALKSNIS 2 where a version of the MULTEXT-East tag set was used. Syntactically annotated sentences are corrected according to guidelines that were created by scientists of VMU CCL, following rules of Prague Dependency Treebank. All the sentences are being manually checked and corrected by a group of linguists.


From v2.1 to v3.0 the treebank was developed within the project “Semantika2” (Nr. 02.3.1-CPVA-V-527-01-0002). The project was funded by European Structural Funds.
