The effectiveness of parsers based on man- ually created resources, namely a grammar and a lexicon, rely mostly on the quality of these resources. Thus, increasing the parser coverage and precision usually im- plies improving these two resources. Their manual improvement is a time consuming and complex task : identifying which re- source is the true culprit for a given mis- take is not always obvious, as well as find- ing the mistake and correcting it. Some techniques, like van Noord (2004) or Sagot and Villemonte de La Clergerie (2006), bringaconvenientwaytoautomat- ically identify forms having potentially er- roneous entries in a lexicon. We have in- tegrated and extended such techniques in a wider process which, thanks to the gram- mar ability to tell how these forms could be used as p...
