CATiB: The Columbia Arabic Treebank
The Columbia Arabic Treebank (CATiB) is a database of syntactic analyses of Arabic sentences. CATiB contrasts with previous approaches to Arabic treebanking in its emphasis on speed with some constraints on linguistic richness. Two basic ideas inspire the CATiB approach: no annotation of redundant information and using representations and terminology inspired by traditional Arabic syntax. We describe CATiB's representation and annotation procedure, and report on interannotator agreement and speed.
