Full paper


This article discusses the usage of a large-scale Chinese treebank for Chinese language teaching and learning developed by Peking University. It shows that by specifying the features of a tree, for instance, a structure’s immediate constitutes, contexts, tree width and tree depth, one can easily extract the needed language structure from the treebank. It also shows that with the tree structure extracted and the web system developed, one can do structure exercises on the web and the result can be automatically assessed by the treebank.
