This paper presents an implemented hy- brid approach to grammar and style checking, combining an industrial pattern- based grammar and style checker with bi- directional, large-scale HPSG grammars for German and English. Under this ap- proach, deep processing is applied selec- tively based on the error hypotheses of a shallow system. We have conducted a com- parative evaluation of the two components, supporting an integration scenario where the shallow system is best used for error de- tection, whereas the HPSG grammars add error correction for both grammar and con- trolled language style errors.
