We present a new collection of treebanks with homogeneous syntactic dependency annotation for six languages: German, English, Swedish, Spanish, French and Korean. To show the usefulness of such a resource, we present a case study of cross- lingual transfer parsing with more reliable evaluation than has been possible before. This ?universal? treebank is made freely available in order to facilitate research on multilingual dependency parsing.1
