In this paper we discuss cascaded Memory- Based grammatical relations assignment. In the first stages of the cascade, we find chunks of sev- eral types (NP,VP,ADJP,ADVP,PP) and label them with their adverbial function (e.g. local, temporal). In the last stage, we assign gram- matical relations to pairs of chunks. We stud- ied the effect of adding several levels to this cas- caded classifier and we found that even the less performing chunkers enhanced the performance of the relation finder.
