Introduction

The Styx is a system designed to provide an electronic corpus-based exercise book of Czech morphology and syntax with exercises directly selected from the Prague Dependency Treebank, the largest annotated corpus of Czech (see sample data).

  • Exercises give practice in:
    • classifying part of speech and particular morphological categories (such as gender, number, case, tense, ...) of words
    • parsing a sentence and classifying syntactic function (such as subject, predicate, objects, ...) of words
  • Correct answers at hand
  • Java implementation

The Styx system is extended with a new program Čapek allowing users to  practice morphology and syntax on their own sentences.
