Abstract

In this paper, we describe the annotation and development of Telugu treebank following the Universal Dependencies framework. We manually annotated 1328 sentences from a Telugu grammar textbook and the treebank is freely available from Universal Dependencies version 2.1.1 In this paper, we discuss some language specific annotation issues and decisions; and report preliminary experiments with POS tagging and dependency parsing. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first freely accessible and open dependency treebank for Telugu.
