Syntactic annotation manual for audio-aligned parsed corpora

Beatrice Santorini and Ariel Diertani

This manual documents the morphosyntactic annotation guidelines for the Audio-Aligned Parsed Corpus of Appalachian English (AAPCAppE) and the Corpus of New York City English (CoNYCE). The guidelines are inspired by and highly indebted to those formulated for the Penn Historical Corpora, but differ in detail.
