In this paper, we extend an existing parser to produce richer output annotated with function labels. We obtain state-of-the-art results both in function labelling and in parsing, by automatically relabelling the Penn Treebank trees. In particular, we ob- tain the best published results on seman- tic function labels. This suggests that cur- rent statistical parsing methods are suffi- ciently general to produce accurate shal- low semantic annotation.
