Universal Dependencies Workshop 2021 (UDW 2021)

SyntaxFest 2021, Online, 21 to 25 March 2022.

UDW 2021 will be held at the SyntaxFest online (zoom and gather.town), during the week of March 21-March 25, 2022. The proceedings have been published preemptively, in December 2021.

Universal Dependencies (UD) is a framework for cross-linguistically consistent treebank annotation that has so far been applied to over 100 languages.

The framework is aiming to capture similarities as well as idiosyncrasies among typologically different languages (e.g., morphologically rich languages, pro-drop languages, and languages featuring clitic doubling). The goal in developing UD was not only to support comparative evaluation and cross-lingual learning but also to facilitate multilingual natural language processing and enable comparative linguistic studies.
