The Tüba-D/Z Treebank: Annotating German with a Context-Free Backbone
The comparison between the annotation schemes of the two treebanks focuses on the different treatments of free word order and discontinuous constituents in German as well as on differences in phrase-internal annotation. Expand
Stylebook for the Tubingen Treebank of Written German (TuBa-D/Z)
This stylebook is an updated version of Telljohann et al. (2006), the most recent and most complete version of the TüBa-D/Z treebank, and focuses on the syntactic annotation of written language data taken from the German newspaper ’die tageszeitung’ (taz). Expand
GernEdiT - The GermaNet Editing Tool
The main purposes of the GernEdiT tool are, besides supporting lexicographers to access, modify, and extend GermaNet data in an easy and adaptive way, to replace the standard editing tools by a more user-friendly tool, use a relational database as data storage, and support export formats in the form of XML.

Is it Really that Difficult to Parse German?
Parser performance for the models trained on TuBa-D/Z are comparable to parsing results for English with the Stanford parser, when trained on the Penn treebank, suggesting that German is not harder to parse than its West-Germanic neighbor language English. Expand
A Unified Representation for Morphological, Syntactic, Semantic, and Referential Annotations
This paper reports on the SYN-RA (SYNtax-based Reference Annotation) project, an on-going project of annotating German newspaper texts with referential relations. The project has developed anExpand
Determining Immediate Constituents of Compounds in GermaNet
Algorithms combining three heterogeneous kinds of compound splitters are developed to achieve better results and the best overall result with an accuracy of 92.42% is achieved by a hybrid combined compound splitter that takes into account all knowledge provided by the individual compoundsplitters, and in addition some domain knowledge about German derivation morphology and compounding.
