Abstract [en]

Data-driven parsing techniques have a number of advantages over rule-based parsing techniques, such as fast development time, broad-coverage and robustness. Treebanks, collections of syntactically annotated sentences, are important resources for data-driven parsers. When developing a parser for Swedish one needs a treebank containing Swedish sentences, but currently there is a lack of Swedish treebanks of substantial size. This holds for the other Nordic languages too, with Danish as an exception. The absence of Swedish treebanks is remarkable considering that two corpora of Swedish text augmented with syntactic annotation have been created, one as early as 1974 named Talbanken (Einarsson 1976), and another in the 80's named Syntag (Järborg 1980). Unfortunately, the annotation formats of these resources make them cumbersome to use for modern treebank tools and parsers. In a way, Sweden can be regarded as a pioneer in this area, but thereafter the work with creating new treebanks has decreased considerably.
