This paper describes an effort to investigate the incrementally deepening development of an interlingua notation, validated by humanannotation of texts in English plus six languages. We begin with deep syntactic annotation, and in this paper present a series of annotation
manuals for six different languages at the deep-syntactic level of representation. Many syntactic differences between languages are
removed in the proposed syntactic annotation, making them useful resources for multilingual NLP projects with semantic components.
