This is a treebank of Faroese based on the Faroese Wikipedia.


The treebank is based on sentences from the Faroese Wikipedia. The whole Wikipedia was analysed using Trond Trosterud's tools for Faroese.[1] We took all the sentences and discarded those with unknown words.

The remaining sentences were manually annotated for Universal Dependencies and the morphology and POS tags were converted deterministically using a lookup table. Errors in the original morphology and disambiguation were corrected where found.

The treebank contains a lot of copula sentences and very little first or second person, as can be expected from Wikipedia texts.

The morphology and preliminary disambiguation was done by Trond Trosterud's finite-state morphology and constraint grammar for Faroese.
