The web-based Boğaziçi University Annotation Tool (BoAT) supports grammar annotation especially suitable for morphologically rich languages (MRLs). It is useful for creating treebanks and conforms to Universal Dependencies (UD) framework. A user can upload and annotate a treebank by providing values for UD CoNLL-U tags (ID, FORM, LEMMA, UPOS, XPOS, FEATS, HEAD, DEPREL, DEPS, MISC). Furthermore, lemmas can be split and tagged, which is useful for MRLs like Turkish. This tool also provides support for sharing experiences among annotators with a rich search feature. It also supports the computation of inter-annotator agreement scores. This tool easily can be built with the following instructions: Prerequisite: Make sure that Docker is installed and running on your system. See `` for installation instructions for your system. 1. Obtain the code using one of the following methods: - Download from the URL `` and unzip - Use Git by `git clone` 2.
