  abstract =     "This paper describes an experiment in grammar
                 engineering for a shallow syntactic parser using
                 Genetic Programming and a treebank. The goal of the
                 experiment is to improve the Parseval score of a
                 previously manually created seed grammar. We illustrate
                 the adaptation of the Genetic Programming paradigm to
                 the problem of grammar engineering. The used genetic
                 operators are described. The performance of the evolved
                 grammar after 1,000 generations on an unseen test set
                 is improved by 2.7 points F-score (3.7 points on the
                 training set). Despite the large number of generations
                 no overfitting effect is observed.",
