This Norwegian treebank is based on the LIA treebank of transcribed spoken Norwegian dialects. The treebank has been automatically converted to the UD scheme by Lilja Øvrelid at the University of Oslo.

The LIA treebank consists of dialect recordings made in the period between 1950–1990, which have been digitised, transcribed, and subsequently annotated with morphological and dependency-style syntactic analysis as part of the LIA (Language Infrastructure made Accessible) project at the University of Oslo. The morphosyntactic annotation of the original treebank follows that of the Norwegian Dependency Treebank, extended to account for spoken language phenomena such as repairs and deletions.


We thank the annotators of the original treebank and in particular Andre Kaasen.
