Recognizing textual entailment is a chal- lenging problem and a fundamental com- ponent of many applications in natural language processing. We present a novel framework for recognizing textual entail- ment that focuses on the use of syntactic heuristics to recognize false entailment. We give a thorough analysis of our sys- tem, which demonstrates state-of-the-art performance on a widely-used test set.
