New mailing list: Greek and Latin Treebanking

Monday, April 29th, 2019

A new mailing list intended for the discussion of Ancient Greek and Latin treebanking, GLTreebank, has been created.

We expect and welcome questions, announcements and colleagial conversation about all aspects of morphosyntactic annotation of the ancient languages, including but not restricted to: querying, visualising, and otherwise using treebanks; the development of treebanked corpora; use and citation of already existing corpora (e.g. AGLDT and PROIEL corpora, or Universal Dependencies); questions about the practicalities or grammatical features around annotating itself; and more theoretical discussion of the value of treebanking in research, pedagogy, and other scholarly practice. Users at all stages of scholarly advancement, including interested nonacademics, are welcome to join.

To subscribe, either go to!forum/gltreebank while logged into your Google account, and select “Apply for membership” (you can change delivery options to a non-Gmail address once subscribed), or send a blank email to <> from the address you wish to use to send and receive email. Your membership will be approved as promptly as possible.

List managers:

  • Marja Vierros
  • Gabriel Bodard
  • Giuseppe Celano
