The Mercurius Treebank is a syntactically annotated corpus using a
modification of the hybrid TIGER annotation scheme, which combines
dependency and constituency information. The annotation scheme was
accommodated to the needs of a historical corpus. So far, the
MERCURIUS treebank comprises two early newspapers. i.e. the
'Mercurius' of 1667 and the 'Annus Christi' published in 1597. with a
total of 170.000 tokens and 8.500 syntactically annotated sentences.
The present corpus has been compiled in 2003 to 2005 as a pilot to a
much larger project aiming at the establishment of a syntactically
annotated reference corpus for the period of Early New High German
(1350-1650) as a whole
