Vers le FDTB : French Discourse Tree Bank

Abstract : We present the first steps towards creating an annotated corpus for discourse in French : the French Discourse Treebank enriching the FTB. Our methodology is based on the Penn Discourse Treebank (PDTB), but it differs in at least two points of a theoretical nature. First, our goal is to provide full coverage of a text, while the PDTB provides only partial coverage, which can not be described as discourse analysis such as the one made in RST or SDRT, two major theories on discourse. Second, we were led to define a new hierarchy of discourse relations which is based on RST, SDRT and PDTB.
