hi francis,

‘lingo/erg/’ in LOGON is the most recent release version, currently 1111.  ‘lingo/terg/’ is the trunk and tends to not provide well-defined treebanks (typically they are out-of-date, e.g. yet to be updated for the next release).

hence, my recommendation would be to use the 1111 grammar and treebanks.  the original unthinned profiles are available as an optional SVN module, please see LogonExtras on the wiki.

our (re-)parse and update procedures are described (to some degree) on ErgReleases and in ‘uio/titan/README’; default [incr tsdb()] settings should be correct for this use case, although it is ages i have done an update interactively (rather than through the ‘parse’ or ‘redwoods’ scripts).

best, oe
