The paper describes a phenomenonbased approach to grammar checking, which draws on the integration of different shallow NLP technologies, including morphological and POS taggers, as well as probabilistic and rulebased partial parsers. We present a declarative specification formalism for grammar checking and controlled language applications which greatly facilitates the development of checking components.
