A morph-based and a word-based treebank for Beja


The paper presents the first UD treebank for Beja, a Cushitic language spoken in Sudan. It has been built from the conversion and enhancement of an Interlinear Glossed Text (IGT). The paper's objectives are threefold: we explain our choice to use a morph-based annotation and its consequences, we describe the processing chain from an IGT to a morph-based dependency treebank and a word-based treebank, and we present several interesting constructions in Beja.
