ntactic representation, it is difficult to compare the accuracy of different syntactic analysis approaches. In the parsing community, the use of a fixed set of dependency-based grammatical relations (Carroll et al., 1998) has been proposed as a way of comparing parsers that use different formalisms. While this evaluation scheme is not as widely used as PARSEVAL, it has recently gained some traction as a more framewor l that this scheme has been applied to previously. 2. The Grammatical Relations scheme The Grammatical Relation scheme (GR) was proposed aiming at a framework-independent metric for parsing accuracy (Carroll et al., 1998). A set of 700 sentences extracted from Section 23 of the Penn Treebank, the same set as the PARC 700 Dependency Bank (King et al....
