This paper describes the integration of the Index Thomisticus Treebank (IT-TB) into the web-based treebank search and visualization application TueNDRA (Tuebingen aNnotated Data Retrieval & Analysis). TueNDRA was originally designed to provide access via the Internet to constituency treebanks and to tools for searching and visualizing them, as well as tabulating statistics about their contents. TueNDRA has now been extended to also provide full support for dependency treebanks with non-projective dependencies, in order to integrate the IT-TB and future treebanks with similar properties. These treebanks are queried using an adapted form of the TIGERSearch query language, which can search both hierarchical and sequential information in treebanks in a single query. As a web application, making the IT-TB accessible via TueNDRA makes the treebank and the tools to use of it available to a large community without having to distribute software and show users how to install it.


Large aligned treebanks for syntax-based machine translation

We present a collection of parallel treebanks that have been automatically aligned on both the terminal and the nonterminal constituent level for use in syntax-based machine translation. We describe how they were constructed and applied to a syntax- and example-based machine translation system called Parse and Corpus-Based Machine Translation (PaCo-MT). For the language pair Dutch to English, we present evaluation scores of both the nonterminal constituent alignments and the MT system itself, and in the latter case, compare them with those of Moses, a current state-of-the-art statistical MT system, when trained on the same data.
