An important aspect of natural language understanding and generation involves the recognition and processing of discourse relations. To address this need, large scale discourse annotated corpora have been built, however, manually constructing such resources is expensive, both in terms of time and expertise. In this talk, I will present the work done in my lab, to automatically create a discourse annotated corpus for French from parallel texts. The approach is based on annotation projection where linguistic annotations are projected from a source language to a target language in parallel texts. We will show how we created the FrConcoDisco corpora, PDTB-style discourse annotated corpora for French, where French discourse connectives are annotated with the discourse relations that they signaled.
