Human Judgements in Parallel Treebank Alignment

By Martin Volk, Torsten Marek and Yvonne Samuelsson


We have built a parallel treebank that includes word and phrase alignment. The alignment information was manually checked using a graphical tool that allows the annotator to view a pair of trees from parallel sentences. We found the compilation of clear alignment guidelines to be a difficult task. However, experiments with a group of students have shown that we are on the right track with up to 89 % overlap between the student annotation and our own. At the same time these experiments have helped us to pin-point the weaknesses in the guidelines, many of which concerned unclear rules related to differences in grammatical forms between the languages.
