This paper presents a parsing system for the detection of syntactic errors. It combines a robust partial parser which obtains the main sentence components and a finite-state parser used for the description of syntactic error patterns. The system has been tested on a corpus of real texts, containing both correct and incorrect sentences, with promising results.
