The major part of the TIGER corpus annotation is carried out by means of the Annotate software. Annotate is a graphical tool for efficient semi-automatic annotation of corpus data. In the framework of the TIGER project, the tool includes a partial parser and a part-of-speech tagger for the automatic partial corpus annotation. Annotate was developed in the NEGRA project at the University of Saarbrï¿½cken. For more information about Annotate, see the Annotate homepage and the LREC'2000 paper by Brants/Plaehn (ps.gz, pdf).
In parallel to the
a broad coverage symbolic LFG grammar - developed in the
Pargram project at the University of Stuttgart - is used for
annotating the TIGER corpus.
Annotation by the LFG grammar involves two steps which are now illustrated
