Welcome to the Alpino Treebank website. The Alpino treebank contains syntactically annotated Dutch sentences. The treebank (more than 150,000 words) includes the full cdbl (newspaper) part of the Eindhoven corpus.

The Alpino Treebank was released in 2002. In the mean-time, our treebanking efforts have led to various corrections of the actual annotations, improvements of the various tools we use, and differences in the actual XML-format that we use for the annotations.

For our more recent treebanking efforts, please refer to the LASSY project. You will find documentation of the most recent formats, tools and treebanks there.

The Alpino Treebank CDROM was created in the context of the NWO Pionier project Algorithms for Linguistic Processing.
