This paper addresses issues in automated treebank construction. We show how stan- dard part-of-speech tagging techniques ex- tend to the more general problem of struc- tural annotation, especially for determi- ning grammatical functions and syntactic categories. Annotation is viewed as an in- teractive process where manual and auto- matic processing alternate. Efficiency and accuracy results are presented. We also dis- cuss further automation steps.
