Polish Dependency Bank 2.0 (PDB 2.0)

PDB 2.0 is an extended version of Składnica zależnościowa (the first Polish dependency treebank). It consists of 22,152 trees and 350,001 tokens (i.e. 15.8 tokens per sentence on average). There are four parts of PDB 2.0:

  1. NKJP1M-based trees (14K)
  2. Projection-based trees (4K)
  3. CDScorpus-based trees (2K)
  4. OTHER trees (2K)

The PDB sentences contain some problematic linguistic phenomena, e.g. ellipsis, comparative constructions, constructions with the bi-functional subordinating conjunction JAKO, directed speech, interpolations and comments, nominative noun phrases used in the vocative function and many others. The Polish dependency relation types are as follows: abbrev_punct, adjunct, adjunct_compar, adjunct_qt, adjunct_rc, aglt, app, aux, comp, comp_ag, comp_fin, comp_inf, cond, conjunct, imp, item, mwe, ne, neg, obj, obj_th, pd, pre_coord, punct, refl, root, subj, vocative. Descritptions of Polish dependency relation types are at http://zil.ipipan.waw.pl/PDB/DepRelTypes. Some dependents are annotated with semantic roles, e.g. Beneficiary/Recipient.

PDB in Universal Dependencies format (PDB-UD)

PDB-UD is a conversion of PDB in the UD-like format. It is an extended and corrected version of the Polish UD treebank (the release 2.1). PDB-UD contains enhanced graphs, i.e. trees with enhanced edges encoding shared dependents of coordinated elements, e.g. Dziewczynka śpiewa i tańczy (The girl sings and dances), and shared governors of coordinated elements, e.g. Dziewczynka i chłopiec śpiewają (A girl and a boy sing). The Polish dependency types are listed here.

PDB-UD trees were used in two shared tasks: LAW-MWE-CxG-2018 and PolEval 2018.

Download: PDB-UD is publicly available on http://git.nlp.ipipan.waw.pl/alina/PDBUD

Download: Alternatively, you can download PDB-UD trees from UD repository.

PDB-trained COMBO's models

Natural language preprocessing models estimated on PDB and PDB-UD are available at http://zil.ipipan.waw.pl/PDB/COMBO.
