In the French Encyclopedia (1765, Volume 14), Beauzée made a clear distinction between the notion of government (Fr. rection) (one word imposes a special form on another) and the notion of complement. Except for the subject, Beauzée’s complementation corresponds to the modern notion of dependency… read more | Chapter

This chapter is devoted to the presentation of the tools and methods used for the different steps of the semi-automatic syntactic annotation: automatic preprocessing; microsyntactic parsing with the FRMG tool, correction of the parsing with the Arborator tool, agreement analysis, post-validation… read more | Chapter

This chapter is devoted to the intonosyntactic interface, by exploring relationships between major prosodic and macrosyntactic units. It presents different kinds of mapping between intonational periods and illocutionary units, and discusses three basic constructions: alignment, when prosodic and… read more | Chapter

This chapter presents the principles underlying the syntactic annotation and in particular the reasons for separating this annotation into two levels, micro and macrosyntax, presented in Chapters 4 and 6. The particular focus on paradigmatic piles (coordination, lists, reformulation, disfluencies,… read more | Chapter
Kahane, Sylvain, Kim Gerdes and Rachel Bawden 2019 Chapter 4. Microsyntactic annotationRhapsodie: A prosodic and syntactic treebank for spoken French, Lacheret-Dujour, Anne, Sylvain Kahane and Paola Pietrandrea (eds.), pp. 49–68
This chapter describes the microsyntactic analysis of the Rhapsodie corpus in terms of dependency syntax. Microsyntax studies the relations between words that are characterized by a strong syntactic cohesion, traditionally called “government”. The different steps in the annotation are presented:… read more | Chapter
Kahane, Sylvain, Paola Pietrandrea and Kim Gerdes 2019 Chapter 5. The annotation of list structuresRhapsodie: A prosodic and syntactic treebank for spoken French, Lacheret-Dujour, Anne, Sylvain Kahane and Paola Pietrandrea (eds.), pp. 69–95
This chapter presents phenomena we call “piles” or “lists”, which are characterized by the fact that a list of elements piles up in the same syntactic position. We therefore group the analysis of coordination together with the analysis of other phenomena such as reformulation, disfluency, partial… read more | Chapter

Exploration of the Rhapsodie corpus: Data structure, formats and query toolsRhapsodie: A prosodic and syntactic treebank for spoken French, Lacheret-Dujour, Anne, Sylvain Kahane and Paola Pietrandrea (eds.), pp. 271–283
This chapter describes the data structure of the Rhapsodie Treebank and discusses methodological issues stemming from the complexity of this structure, articulated around three independent, non-aligned, hierarchies: Microsyntactic, macrosyntactic and prosodic, and the challenging questions to be… read more | Chapter

This chapter describes the macrosyntactic annotation of the Rhapsodie corpus, from the linguistic heritage to Rhapsodie’s own theoretical approach to macrosyntax. Macrosyntactic phenomena, such as dislocation, discourse markers, inserts, or parenthesis, are quite frequent in spoken French. The… read more | Chapter

The notion of sentence – as it is defined in syntactic, semantic, graphic and prosodic terms – is not a suitable maximal unit for the prosodic and syntactic annotation of spoken corpora. Still, this notion is taken as a reference in many syntactic and prosodic annotation systems. We present here… read more | Article

This article aims at two objectives : We want to show that principal word order phenomena can be described in a topological approach to linearization, i.e. a linking of an (unordered) dependency tree and a ordered structure, the topological constituent tree. Moreover, we want to put forward the… read more | Article
