In this paper, we propose a tree annota- tion tool using a parser in order to build a treebank. For the purpose of mini- mizing manual effort without any mod- ification of the parser, it performs two- phase parsing for the intra-structure of each segment and the inter-structure af- ter segmenting a sentence. Experimen- tal results show that it can reduce man- ual effort about 24.5% as compared with a tree annotation tool without seg- mentation because an annotation’s in- tervention related to cancellation and reconstruction remarkably decrease al- though it requires the annotator to seg- ment some long sentence.
