We describe some challenges of adaptation in the 2007 CoNLL Shared Task on Domain Adaptation. Our error analysis for this task suggests that a primary source of error is differencesinannotationguidelinesbetween treebanks. Our suspicions are supported by the observation that no team was able to im- prove target domain performance substan- tially over a state of the art baseline.
