Universal Dependencies for Portuguese

Synopsis:

This paper describes the process of converting the Portuguese Bosque corpus to the Universal Dependencies scheme version 2. The conversion was done by applying to the corpus a careful context-sensitive conversion process from its original deep linguistic analysis sources. Universal Dependencies offer the promise of greater parallelism between languages. The processĀ  consisted of converting a constituency treebank, together with additional manual revision of the trees, all informed by a live Constraint Grammar parsing framework. This process shows some of the essential difficulties of dealing with a Romance language, Portuguese.
