This paper presents the XTAG system, a grammar de- velopment tool based on the Tree Adjoining Grammar (TAG) formalism that includes a wide-coverage syn- tactic grammar for English. The various components of the system are discussed and preliminary evalua- tion results from the parsing of various corpora are given. Results from the comparison of X3AG against the IBM statistical parser and the Alvey Natural Lan- guage Tool parser are also given.
