Dear colleagues,

We have been developing Capek - an annotation editor tailored to
schoolchildren. It allows them to practice morphology and syntax in a
similar way as they normally do at (a Czech) school with a paper and

We use the editor to explore a new way to get more morphologically
and syntactically annotated data by transforming their annotation into a
more linguistically appropriate schema. We have been testing it for
the Czech language and the Prague Dependency Treebank annotation
schema. However, the editor is designed to be language independent.

Could you please help us with the following questions?

1. Is sentence diagramming taught in your country? If yes, at which
level (elementary, secondary, college)?

2. Can you see the editor Capek useful? Do you know of anybody who
could use it?

For more details see http://ufal.mff.cuni.cz/styx/capek_en.html.

All best,
