We evaluate the effect of adding parse fea- tures to a leading model of preposition us- age. Results show a significant improve- ment in the preposition selection task on native speaker text and a modest increment in precision and recall in an ESL error de- tection task. Analysis of the parser output indicates that it is robust enough in the face of noisy non-native writing to extract use- ful information.
