An effective procedure for automatically acquiring a new set of disambiguation rules for an existing deterministic parser on the basis of tagged text is presented. Performance of the automatically ac- quired rules is much better than the existing hand- written disambiguation rules. The success of the acquired rules depends on using the linguistic in- formation encoded in the parser; enhancements to various components of the parser improves the ac- quired rule set. This work suggests a path toward more robust and comprehensive syntactic analyz- ers.
