The Leipzig Glossing Rules ( were devised with a very specific purpose in mind, namely to standardize the notations used by linguists in order to present the morphological structure of example sentences in language structures unfamiliar to the reader. While they form a suitable basis for annotation in projects like CorpAfroAs, such projects have a higher level of requirements, in particular the need to be able to retrieve particular categories and structures from corpora in various languages. The article discusses with examples the extensions of the LGR that are needed for this purpose.
