We present a rule-based shallow- parser compiler, which allows to generate a robust shallow-parser for any language, even in the absence of training data, by resorting to a very limited number of rules which aim at identifying constituent boundaries. We contrast our approach to other approaches used for shallow-parsing (i.e. finite-state and probabilistic methods).
