The aim of this document is to provide a list of dependency tags that are to be used for the Arabic dependency annotation task, with examples provided for each tag. The dependency representation is a simple description of the grammatical relationships in a sentence. It represents all sentence relations uniformly typed as dependency relations. The dependencies are all binary relations between a governor (also known the head) and a dependant (any complement of or modifier to the head).
