Universal dependencies version 2 for Japanese


In this paper, we are presenting our work to build Universal Dependencies (UD) resources for Japanese. The UD Japanese resources are built based on automatic conversion from several treebanks. The word delimitation, POS, and syntactic relations of the existing treebanks are ported for the UD annotation scheme. We discuss the issues of the UD scheme found through porting of the Japanese language.
