This paper describes a Verb Phrase Ellipsis (VPE) detection system, built for robust- ness, accuracy and domain independence. The system is corpus-based, and uses a va- riety of machine learning techniques on free text that has been automatically parsed us- ing two difierent parsers. Tested on a mixed corpus comprising a range of genres, the sys- tem achieves a 72% F1-score. It is designed as the flrst stage of a complete VPE resolu- tion system that is input free text, detects VPEs, and proceeds to flnd the antecedents and resolve them.
