The paper describes two parsing schemes: a shallow approach based on machine learning and a cascaded finite-state parser with a hand-crafted grammar. It dis- cusses several ways to combine them and presents evaluation results for the two in- dividual approaches and their combina- tion. An underspecification scheme for the output of the finite-state parser is intro- duced and shown to improve performance.
