Hi Olga,

In the CoNLL shared tasks on dependency parsing in 2006 and 2007, a number of treebanks were used, some of which do not yet seem to be part of the database:

Prague Arabic Dependency Treebank Basque Dependency Treebank Sinica Treebank (Chinese) Penn Treebank (English) Tiger Treebank (German) Greek Dependency Treebank Szeged Treebank (Hungarian) Italian Syntactic-Semantic Treebank Verbmobil Treebank (Japanese) Floresta Sintactica (Portuguese) Metu-Sabanci Turkish Treebank

Of course, not all of these are genuine dependency treebanks, but judging from the treebanks included in the database so far, this does not seem to be a necessary requirement.

In addition, there are two depedency treebanks for Latin, although I think they are being merged, and a third treebank for Italian (the Venice Italian Treebank), which also exists in a dependency version.

Best, Joakim
