In this paper, we propose that grammar er- ror detection be disambiguated in generat- ing the connected parse(s) of optimal merit for the full input utterance, in overcom- ing the cheapest error. The detected er- ror(s) are described as violated grammat- ical constraints in a framework for Model- Theoretic Syntax (MTS). We present a parsing algorithm for MTS, which only re- lies on a grammar of well-formedness, in that the process does not require any extra- grammatical resources, additional rules for constraint relaxation or error handling, or any recovery process.
