Graphs exceeding the formal complexity of rooted trees are of growing relevance to much NLP research. Although formally well-understood in graph theory, there is substantial variation in the types of linguistic graphs, as well as in the interpretation of various structural properties. To provide a common terminology and transparent statistics across different collections of graphs in NLP, we propose to establish a shared community resource with an open-source reference implementation for common statistics.
