We outline the design and creation of a syntactically and morphologically annotated corpora of Finnish for use by the research community. We motivate a definitional, systematic “grammar definition corpus” as a basic step in an three-year annotation effort to help create systematically documented extensive parsebanks. The syntactic representation, consisting of a dependency structure and a basic set of dependency functions, is outlined with examples.
