  title={Detecting Errors in Discontinuous Structural Annotation},
  author={Markus Dickinson and Walt Detmar Meurers},
Consistency of corpus annotation is an essential property for the many uses of annotated corpora in computational and theoretical linguistics. While some research addresses the detection of inconsistencies in positional annotation (e.g., partof-speech) and continuous structural annotation (e.g., syntactic constituency), no approach has yet been developed for automatically detecting annotation errors in discontinuous structural annotation. This is significant since the annotation of potentially… CONTINUE READING
