The Multiling RST Treebank is a corpus of specialized texts in several languages, which have been manually annotated with discourse relations of Rhetorical Structure Theory (RST) by Mann and Thompson (1988). Although it is dynamic corpus, currently it contains 15 parallel abstracts from the terminological domain, in English, Spanish and Basque.

RSTTool (O'Donnel 2000) is the annotation interface used to annotate this corpus.

In this website, various contents can be extracted from the corpus:
  • Occurrences of any discourse relation.
  • Relations of any particular text.
  • Linear segmentation of any particular text.
