Abstract

The CoNLL-2014 shared task is an extension of last year’s shared task and focuses on correcting grammatical errors in essays written by non-native learners of English. In this paper, we describe the Illinois-Columbia system that participated in the shared task. Our system ranked second on the original annotations and first on the revised annotations. The core of the system is based on the University of Illinois model that placed first in the CoNLL-2013 shared task. This baseline model has been improved and expanded for this year’s competition in several respects. We describe our underlying approach, which relates to our previous work, and describe the novel aspects of the system in more detail.

    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 common grammatical mistakes made by English as Second Language writers. We describe our underlying approach, which relates to our previous work, and describe the novel aspects of the system in more detail. Out of 17 participating teams, our system is ranked first based on both the original annotation and on the revised annotation.
