UDante: First Steps Towards the Universal Dependencies Treebank of Dante's Latin Works

Cecchini, Flavio Massimiliano; Sprugnoli, Rachele; Moretti, Giovanni; Passarotti, Marco

This paper presents the early stages of the development of a new treebank containing all of Dante Alighieri’s Latin works. In particular, it describes the conversion of the original TEI-XML files to CoNLL-U, the creation of a gold standard, the process of training four annotators and the evaluation of the syntactic annotation in terms of inter-annotator agreement and LA, UAS and LAS. The aim is to release a new resource, in view of the celebrations for the 700th anniversary of Dante’s death, which can support the development of the Vocabolario Dantesco.
