The Norwegian Dependency Treebank (NDT) is a new syntactic treebank for Norwegian Bokmål and Nynorsk, the two written standards of Norwegian. It contains approximately 600,000 tokens, equally distributed between Norwegian Bokmål and Nynorsk, manually annotated with pos-tags, morphological features, syntactic functions and dependency graphs.

The NDT is developed at the National Library of Norway in collaboration with the University of Oslo, and is the first publically available treebank for Norwegian Bokmål and Nynorsk. This release of the NDT contains detailed annotation guidelines in English and Norwegian.
