	abstract     = {In this paper, we present our current activities towards the compilation and the multi-layered annotation of a domain-dependent corpus for Swedish in the area of medicine. The focus of the paper is based on the description of the constituent structure and functionally oriented annotation of the corpus. Moreover, the annotation scheme adopted, which incorporates three main layers of linguistic processing, lexical analysis, shallow semantic analysis and syntactic processing, will be exemplified. For the syntactic analysis we use a cascaded finite-state parser, aware of the shallow semantic annotations produced. The result of this analysis, including syntactic parsing and shallow semantic analysis, is transformed into the TIGER-XML interchange format. Our goal is to produce a large, rich in annotations, medical treebank suitable for both corpus-based grammar learning systems, for semantic relation extraction and for linguistic exploration of theoretical nature.},
