Abstract

Treebank formats and associated software tools are proliferating rapidly, with little consideration for interoperability. We survey a wide variety of treebank structures and operations, and show how they can be mapped onto the annotation graph model, and leading to an integrated framework encompassing tree and non-Tree annotations alike. This development opens up new possibilities for managing and exploiting multilayer annotations.
