The Korean Treebank Annotations Version 2.0 was developed by the Linguistic Data Consortium (LDC) and contains 647 articles of Korean newswire text annotated with morphological and syntactic information. It is an extension of the Korean English Treebank Annotations (LDC2002T26).


The original texts for the Korean Treebank 2.0 were selected from the LDC corpus Korean Newswire (LDC2000T45), which is a collection of Korean Press Agency news articles from June 2, 1994 to March 20, 2000. Korean Treebank 2.0 is based on the March 2000 portion of the corpus. The articles were collected by means of a continuous feed from the news provider over a modem connection.

The annotated corpus can find many uses, including training of morphological analyzers, part-of-speech taggers and syntactic parsers.

The text is encoded as KSC-5601(EUC-KR). Version 1.1 of the treebank is included in this release.
