Latin Dependency Treebank

dependency tree structure

Developed at Perseus Digital Libray (Tufts University, Boston, MA, USA), the Latin Dependency Treebank includes around 53,000 syntactically annotated nodes excerpted from texts of authors of Classical Latin. The guidelines for syntactic annotation of the Latin Dependency Treebank are the same as those for the corresponding layer of annotation of the Index Thomisticus Treebank.

In the Index Thomisticus Treebank project, we make available a portion of the Latin Dependency Treebank that we evaluated/fixed at syntactic layer and annotated from scratch at semantic/pragmatic layer, following the same guidelines for the equivalent layer in the Index Thomisticus Treebank. Presently, this subset consists of the entire De coniuratione Catilinae by Sallust and of excerpts from Caesar and Cicero (around 1,500 nodes each). The Latin Dependency Treebank can be browsed here through the PML-TQ web interface.
