Linguists and engineers in Natural Language Processing tend to use
electronic corpora more and more. Most research has long been limited
to raw (unannotated) texts or to tagged texts (annotated with parts of
speech only), but these approaches suffer from a word by word
perspective. A new line of research involves corpora with richer
annotations such as clauses and major constituents, grammatical
functions and dependency links. The first parsed corpora were the
English Lancaster treebank and Penn Treebank. New ones have recently
been developed for other languages. This book:
 + provides a state of the art on work being done with parsed
 + gathers 21 papers on building and using parsed corpora raising
 many relevant questions;
 + deals with a variety of languages and a variety of corpora;
 + is for those working in linguistics, computational linguistics,
 natural language, syntax, and grammar.
