RST Basque TreeBank

   The RST Basque Treebank was annotated at subsentential level following Tofilosky et al. (2009) and using the extended classification of discourse relations following the Rhetorical Structure Theory (RST) by Mann and Thompson (1988). The annotated corpus contains 60 abstract texts from three different domains: medical, terminologycal and scientific. RSTTool (O'Donnel 2000), an annotation interface for RST was used to annotate this corpus and RhetDataBase was used to annotate the signals of the rhetorical relations.

In this website the user may look up:
  • all the occurrences of any relation in the corpus,
  • the relations of a chosen text,
  • the linear segmentation of a text,
  • the rhetorical relations that are linked to the central unit in the discourse structure,
  • the signals of the rhetorical relations, and
  • any information in the corpus based on part of speech.
