We present an implemented XML data model and a new, simplified query language for multi-level an- notated corpora. The new query language involves automatic conversion of queries into the underly- ing, more complicated MMAXQL query language. It supports queries for sequential and hierarchical, but also associative (e.g. coreferential) relations. The simplified query language has been designed with non-expert users in mind.
