This paper introduces a description language for syntactically annotated corpora which al- lows for encoding both the syntactic annota- tion to a corpus and the queries to a syntac- tically annotated corpus. In terms of descriptive adequacy and com- putational efficiency, the description lan- guage is a compromise between script-like corpus query languages and high-level, typed unification-based grammar formalisms.
