We describe a novel method for coping with un- grammatical input based on the use of chart-like data structures, which permit anytime process- ing. Priority is given to deep syntactic anal- ysis. Should this fail, the best partial analy- ses are selected, according to a shortest-paths algorithm, and assembled in a robust process- ing phase. The method has been applied in a speech translation project with large HPSG grammars.
