The valency theory as a part of the theory of Functional Generative Description ([16]) of language meaning has been around for some time ([14]). However, it is for the first time that a large-scale corpus (the Prague Dependency Treebank (PDT, [4]) has been fully annotated with valency information based on this theory, i.e., with fully referenced valency(More)
We introduce a substantial update of the Prague Czech-English Dependency Treebank, a parallel corpus manually annotated at the deep syntactic layer of linguistic representation. The English part consists of the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) section of the Penn Treebank. The Czech part was translated from the English source sentence by sentence. This paper gives(More)
The requirements of the depth and precision of annotation vary for different intended uses of the corpus but it has been commonly accepted nowadays that the standard annotations of surface structure are only the first steps in a more ambitious research program, aiming at a creation of advanced resources for most different systems of natural language(More)
We present the Prague Dependency Treebank 2.5, the newest version of PDT and the first to be released under a free license. We show the benefits of PDT 2.5 in comparison to other state-of-the-art treebanks. We present the new features of the 2.5 release, how they were obtained and how reliably they are annotated. We also show how they can be used in queries(More)
This manual is supposed to introduce into the practice of syntactic tagging in the framework of the Prague Dependency Treebank (henceforth PDT). After a brief Introduction, a list of used symbols is given (Sect. 1) followed by a description of the automatic procedure dealing with grammatemes (Sect. 2.1), and by instructions covering further transducing(More)
