This is a conversion of the ALKSNIS treebank to Universal Dependencies. The original treebank was annotated in a style derived from the Prague Dependency Treebank of Czech. The original treebank is available in the CLARIN LT repository at (Some users experience DNS errors when trying to access the repository; configuring the client machine to use as the DNS server may help.

ALKSNIS v2 consists of 2,355 syntactically annotated sentences. Each node of a tree corresponds to a word, a punctuation mark or other text element (symbol, digit etc.) within a sentence. The following information is presented for each node: 1) a used form; 2) a lemma; 3) a morphology tag, and 4) a syntactic function (subject, object, etc.). Dependencies are shown by links between words.

A version of the MULTEXT-East ( tag set is used in ALKSNIS v2 and in the XPOS column of the UD conversion. Syntactically annotated sentences are corrected according to guidelines that were created by scientists of VMU CCL, following rules of Prague Dependency Treebank. All the sentences are being manually checked and corrected by a group of linguists.
