In this paper we explain how we annotated subordinators in the Turkish Discourse Bank (TDB), an effort that started in 2007 and is still continuing. We introduce the project and describe some of the issues that were important in annotating three subordinators, namely karşin, rǎgmen and halde, all of which encode the coherence relation Contrast-Concession. We also describe the annotation tool. © 2009 The Association for Computational Linguistics.
