Hi, you can also get the Sequoia Treebank (a freely available treebank for French, with an French Treebank based annotation scheme).


Also, if you're interested on comparing with the state-of-the-art POS tagging of French,

I'd suggest you to sign a license for the French Treebank http://www.llf.cnrs.fr/Gens/Abeille/French-Treebank-fr.php ) and

contact Marie Candito (marie.candito at linguist.jussieu.fr) to get the data set that has been used the most in the literature.

(see http://aclweb.org/aclwiki/index.php?title=POS_Tagging_(State_of_the_art) )

Best, Djamé
