Universal Dependencies for Serbian in Comparison with Croatian and Other Slavic Languages

Tanja Samardžić, Mirjana Starović, Željko Agić, Nikola Ljubešić


Abstract
The paper documents the procedure of building a new Universal Dependencies (UDv2) treebank for Serbian starting from an existing Croatian UDv1 treebank and taking into account the other Slavic UD annotation guidelines. We describe the automatic and manual annotation procedures, discuss the annotation of Slavic-specific categories (case governing quantifiers, reflexive pronouns, question particles) and propose an approach to handling deverbal nouns in Slavic languages.
