This paper presents the first results on parsing the Penn Parsed Corpus of Mod- ern British English (PPCMBE), a million- word historical treebank with an annota- tion style similar to that of the Penn Tree- bank (PTB). We describe key features of the PPCMBE annotation style that differ from the PTB, and present some exper- iments with tree transformations to bet- ter compare the results to the PTB. First steps in parser analysis focus on problem- atic structures created by the parser.
