UD_French-ParTUT is a conversion of a multilingual parallel treebank developed at the University of Turin, and consisting of a variety of text genres, including talks, legal texts and Wikipedia articles, among others.
UD_French-ParTUT data is derived from the already-existing parallel treebank Par(allel)TUT.
ParTUT is a morpho-syntactically annotated collection of Italian/French/English parallel sentences, which includes texts from different sources and representing different genres and domains, released in several formats.
ParTUT comprises approximately 167,000 tokens, with an average amount of 2,100 sentences per language. The texts of the collection currently available were gathered from a large number of sources and domains:
- the Creative Commons open license;
- the DGT-Translation Memory
- the Europarl parallel corpus [Koehn, 2005] (section ep_00_01_17);
- publicly available pages from Facebook website;
- the JRC-Acquis multilingual parallel corpus (section jrc52006DC243) [Steinberger et al., 2006];
- several articles from Project Syndicate© [ABSENT IN UD_French-ParTUT];
- the Universal Declaration of Human Rights;
- Wikipedia articles retrieved in the English section and then translated into Italian only by graduate students in Translation Studies [ABSENT IN UD_French-ParTUT];
- the Web Inventory of Translated Talks [Cettolo et al., 2012].
We are deeply grateful to Project Syndicate© for letting us download and exploit their articles as text material, under the terms of educational use.
The corpus was randomly split using a script. In order to preserve the 1:1 correspondence among the three language sections, all of them were partitioned in the same way; therefore the same sentences, in the same order, are found in the training, development and test set of the English and Italian treebanks as well. However, considering that since v2.1 UD_Italian-ParTUT has been re-partitioned, because of overlapping sentences with UD_Italian, the French section now appears as follows:
- fr_partut-ud-train.conllu: 24146 words (804 sentences)
- fr_partut-ud-dev.conllu: 3237 words (160 sentences)
- fr_partut-ud-test.conllu: 1214 words (56 sentences)
- Tree count: 1020
- Word count: 28597
- Token count: 27661
- Dep. relations: 48 of which 14 language specific
- POS tags: 17
- Category=value feature pairs: 34
