2008) and Tetreault and Chodorow (2008a). First, all three used different evaluation sets: De Felice and Pulman used CLC, Gamon et al. To further complicate system comparison, they targeted different sets of prepositions: De Felice and Pulman focused on the nine most frequently occurring prepositions, Gamon et al. (2008) on twelve, and Tetreault and Chodorow on the most frequently occurring 34. In addition, all three tackle different aspects of the preposition problem. De Felice and Pulman developed a system for detecting preposition errors where the writer used the wrong preposition (selection error).

To get an estimate of how performance differs on well-formed versus learner writing, we carried out the following experiment. All of the CLC sentences that contained article and preposition errors were extracted and used to create two test sets: a “corrected set” where, with the exception of the targeted error, all of the other errors flagged in the sentence were corrected, and the “original set” where none of the other errors were corrected. Errors that were marked as being spelling errors, however, were corrected, so the uncorrected sentences were partially cleaned up.
