Abstract : A technique is described for performing fitted parsing. After the rules of more conventional syntactic grammar are unable to produce a parse for an input string, this technique can be used to produce a reasonable approximate parse that can serve as input to the remaining stages of processing. The paper describes now fitted parsing is done in the EPISTLE system and discusses how it can help in dealing with many difficult problems of natural language analysis.
