This paper focuses on semantic role la- beling using automatically-generated syn- tactic information. A simple and robust strategy for system combination is pre- sented, which allows to partially recover from input parsing errors and to signif- icantly boost results of individual sys- tems. This combination scheme is also very flexible since the individual systems are not required to provide any informa- tion other than their solution. Extensive experimental evaluation in the CoNLL- 2005 shared task framework supports our previous claims. The proposed architec- ture outperforms the best results reported in that evaluation exercise.
