We compare the performance of a transition-based parser in regards to different annotation schemes. We propose to convert some specific syntactic constructions observed in the universal dependency treebanks into a so-called more standard representation and to evaluate parsing performances over all the languages of the project. We show that the ‚Äústandard‚ÄĚ constructions do not lead systematically to better parsing performance and that the scores vary considerably according to the languages.
