The manual design of grammars for accurate natu- ral language analysis is an iterative process; while modelling decisions usually determine parser be- haviour, evidence from analysing more or differ- ent input can suggest unforeseen regularities, which leads to a reformulation of rules, or even to a differ- ent model of previously analysed phenomena. We describe an implementation of Weighted Constraint Dependency Grammar that supports the grammar writer by providing display, automatic analysis, and diagnosis of dependency analyses and allows the di- rect exploration of alternative analyses and their sta- tus under the current grammar.
