Hi Amir,

since the English data used in the Universal Dependency Treebank cannot be freely distributed, they include code to automatically tag/convert it. If I remember correctly, it uses an old version of the Stanford Parser and applies a transformation to the universal categories.


You find the code in the "std/en" folder of universal_treebanks_v2.0.tar.gz.

I didn't try it, but it might be what you are looking for.

I realize it's non-trivial because of the different handling of propositions, case, names etc. but I think with some heuristics a good baseline solution might be possible. Has anyone worked on a tool to do this automatically?
