Dependency Annotation for Learner Corpora

Markus Dickinson and Marwa Ragheb

Proceedings of the Eighth Workshop on Treebanks and Linguistic Theories (TLT-8). Milan, Italy.

Building from the CHILDES dependency annotation scheme and on interlanguage POS annotation, we describe a syntactic annotation scheme developed for the data of second language learners. We encode subcategorization frames and underlying dependencies, in addition to the usual surface dependencies. The annotation scheme is relatively independent of language and can be mapped to learner errors.
