Abstract

Incorrect usage of prepositions and determiners constitute the most common types of errors made by non-native speakers of English. It is not surprising, then, that there has been a significant amount of work directed towards the automated detection and correction of such errors. However, to date, the use of different data sets and different task definitions has made it difficult to compare work on the topic. This paper reports on the HOO 2012 shared task on error detection and correction in the use of prepositions and determiners, where systems developed by 14 teams from around the world were evaluated on the same previously unseen errorful text.
