This paper describes our participation of the Recognizing Textual Entailment challenge this year. Based on our promising results in the RTE-3 challenge last year (66.9% of accuracy) using a precision-oriented puristic syntactic approach (puristic in the sense that we only performed dependency parsing), we explored further extensions of this perspective. By extension, we developed more specialized RTE-modules to tackle more cases (i.e., entailment pairs) while trying to keep high accuracy.
