We describe the new release of the RASP (robust accurate statistical parsing) sys- tem, designed for syntactic annotation of free text. The new version includes a revised and more semantically-motivated output representation, an enhanced gram- mar and part-of-speech tagger lexicon, and a more flexible and semi-supervised train- ing method for the structural parse ranking model. We evaluate the released version on the WSJ using a relational evaluation scheme, and describe how the new release allows users to enhance performance using (in-domain) lexical information.
