We demonstrate the current state of INESS, the Infrastructure for the Exploration of Syntax and Semantics. INESS is making treebanks more accessible to the R&D community. Recent work includes the hosting of more treebanks, now covering more than fifty languages. Special attention is paid to NorGramBank, a large treebank for Norwegian, and to the inclusion of the Universal Dependency treebanks, all of which are interactively searchable with INESS Search.
