A technique is described for performing fitted parsing. After the rules of a more conventional syntactic grammar are unable to produce a parse for an input string, this technique can be used to produce a reasonable approximate parse that can serve as input to the remaining stages of processing. The paper describes how fitted parsing is done in the EP[STLE system and discusses how it can help in dealing with many difficult problems of natural language analysis.
