(3) BOLT English Translation Treebank - Chinese Discussion Forum was developed by LDC and consists of 147,432 tokens of web discussion forum data translated from Chinese to English and annotated for part-of-speech and syntactic structure.
The source data is Chinese discussion forum web text collected by LDC in 2011 and 2012, translated into English and released in BOLT Chinese Discussion Forum Parallel Training Data (LDC2017T05). A subset of the translated text -- 148 files representing 147,432 tokens -- was selected for the treebank and annotated for word-level tokenization, part-of-speech and syntactic structure. Only the translated English text is included in the source data for this release.
Part-of-speech and treebank annotation conformed to Penn Treebank II style, incorporating changes to those guidelines that were developed under the GALE (Global Autonomous Language Exploitation) program. Supplementary guidelines for English treebanks and web text are included with this release.
