As an application of NLP to computer-assisted language learn- ing(CALL), we propose a diag- nostic processing of Japanese be- ing able to detect errors and inap- propriateness of sentences composed by the students in the given situ- ation and the context of the exer- cise texts. Using LTAG(Lexicalized Tree Adjoining Grammar) formal- ism, we have implemented a proto- type of such a diagnostic parser as a component of a CALL system being developed.
