Querying Dependency Treebanks in PML-TQ (Jan Štěpánek)

The tutorial will introduce the Prague Markup Language Tree Query, a powerful open-source search tool for all kinds of linguistically annotated treebanks with several client interfaces and two search backends.

We will go over the following topics:

  • Which data formats are supported?
  • Simple queries
  • Creating reports
  • Complex queries: negation, quantifiers
  • What do I need to install the tool myself?

We will see lots of examples using some of the following treebanks (not necessarily dependency based):

  • The Prague Dependency Treebank 2.0
  • The Penn Treebank 3 (WSJ, Atis, Brown, and Switchboard data sets)
  • The TIGER Treebank 1.0
  • The Penn - CU Chinese Treebank 6.0
  • The Penn Arabic Treebank 2 - version 2.0
  • Hyderabad Treebank - (Bengali, Hindi, and Telugu Train Sets)
  • Sinica Treebank 3.0
  • Prague Czech-English Dependency Treebank 2.0
  • CoNLL 2009 ST (Catalan, Chinese, English, German, and Spanish Train Sets)
