The ArmTDP Eastern Armenian UD treebank is based on the ՀայՇտեմ-ArmTDP-East dataset (2.0), created by the ArmTDP team led by Marat M. Yavrumyan at the Yerevan State University.

UD_Armenian is based on the ՀայՇտեմ-ArmTDP-East dataset (version 2.0), a mix of random sentences sampled from different sources and representing different genres and domains, released in several formats (local on-line newspaper and journal articles, contemporary fiction dated between 1976 and 2018). The treebank consists 1030 sentences (~2.3k tokens).

The annotation scheme was developed in according to the UD guidelines. The original data was manually annotated by the ArmTDP team. The tokenization and POS-tagging process was carried out through alternating steps of automatic scripting and manual revision in the YerevaNN research lab (led by Hrant H. Khachatrian). The treebank is so far the only manual verificated corpus of Eastern Armenian supplied with comprehensive morphological annotation and syntactic annotation in the form of a complete dependency tree provided for every sentence.


This work became possible in part by a research grant from the Armenian National Science and Education Fund (ANSEF) based in New York, USA. We are deeply grateful to ANSEF, also to Lragir.am, 1in.am and Yavruhrat Publishing for letting us download and exploit their articles as text material under the terms of educational use.
