I would like to draw the curved arrows from the image below. I tried it using TikZ but I couldn't figure out how to draw the curved lines.

enter image description here

  • Can you provide the code you've been working on? So we have something to use without writing it from scratch. :)

  • I don't have anything that looks like it yet :/, but here are the lines: [CP [C \textbf{é} [C’[TP [ T {que} [T’ [vP {XP} [v [v’[VP V XP]]]]]]] \\ [CP \textbf{XP} [C {é} [C’[TP [ T {que} [T’ [vP \textbf{\sout{XP}} [v [v’[VP V XP]]]]]]]

You could use a \tikzmark that in our case takes two arguments:

\tikzmark{<reference name>}{<actual text>}

Later, we can draw regular arrows inside a \tikzpicture with some options to draw on top of the document.




\usetikzlibrary{calc, arrows.meta}
    \tikz[remember picture,baseline=(#1.base)] \node (#1) {#2};}

[CP [C \textbf{é} [C’[TP [ T {que} [T’ [vP {XP} [v [v’[VP V XP]]]]]]] 

[CP \tikzmark{a}{\textbf{XP}} [\tikzmark{c}{C} é [C’[TP [ T {que} [T’ [vP \tikzmark{b}{\textbf{\st{XP}}} [v [v’[VP V XP]]]]]]]

\begin{tikzpicture}[overlay,remember picture]
\path (c.south) edge[thick, bend right,-{Latex}] (b);
\path (b.north) edge[thick, bend right,-{Latex}] (a);
  • Awesome! Thanks a lot, that really helps :)
