In this paper, we describe our initial efforts for creating a Turkish constituency parse treebank by utilizing the English Penn Treebank. We employ a semiautomated approach for annotation. In our previouswork , the English parse trees were manually translated to Turkish. In this paper, the words are semi-automatically annotated morphologically. As a second step, a rule-based approach is used for refining the parse trees based on the morphological analyses of the words. We generated Turkish phrase structure trees for 5143 sentences from Penn Treebank that contain fewer than 15 tokens. The annotated corpus can be used in statistical natural language processing studies for developing tools such as constituency parsers and statistical machine translation systems for Turkish.
