Preposition and Determiner Error Correction

The HOO (Helping Our Own) Exercise (see [Dale and Kilgarriff 2010]) is concerned with correcting textual errors. The HOO Pilot Shared Task (see [Dale and Kilgarriff 2011]) looked at a diverse range of error types in a small set of documents. HOO 2012, which will be hosted by the Building Educational Applications Workshop at NAACL 2012, focusses on the correction of preposition and determiner errors in a large collection of non-native speaker texts.
