Since its first edition in 2002, TLT has provided a forum for discussion of methods and tools for the design, creation and exploitation of treebanks and the linguistic theories acting as their background. Today, treebanks are essential resources both for data-driven approaches to natural language processing and for linguistic research. Indeed, while treebank data are frequently exploited for tasks in computational linguistics such as grammar induction and the training of NLP tools, in linguistic research they can be used in order to refine and improve pre-corpus linguistic theories. Furthermore, large-scale data annotation allows for empirically evaluating the accuracy of a grammar and revising it on the basis of evidence.
