In the second stage, two tools were used to automatise the production of the tree diagrams and to link them to their corresponding database entry: a) the Charniak parser (Charniak & Johnson, 2005), which uses a regularised MaxEntreranker to select the best parse from the 50 best parses yielded by a generative parsing model; and b) the phpSyntax Tree (http://www.
