06 JOS-SYN Syntax

The JOS-SYN system, which was crafted during the Linguistic Annotation of Slovene: Methods and Resources project (Erjavec et al. 2010) and later applied in the Communication in Slovene initiative (Krek et al. 2020), is designed to mark syntactic relations in Slovene sentences. Drawing on the scholarly groundwork of Slovene linguistics, particularly Toporišič's 2004 grammar, it also integrates core principles from established dependency tagging frameworks. Its hallmark is the incorporation of insights from the JOS morphosyntactic annotation or its updated version, MULTEXT-East v6 (Erjavec 2012). The system enriches the data with only the essential information not captured by morphosyntax, thus creating a robust and clear annotation framework.
