The CoNLL-2013 shared task focuses on correcting grammatical errors in essays written by non-native learners of English. In this paper, we describe the University of Illinois system that participated in the shared task. The system consists of five components and targets five types of com- mon grammatical mistakes made by En- glish as Second Language writers. We de- scribe our underlying approach, which re- lates to our previous work, and describe the novel aspects of the system in more de- tail. Out of 17 participating teams, our sys- tem is ranked first based on both the orig- inal annotation and on the revised annota- tion.
