This report presents a robust syntactic parser that is able to return a ``correct" derivation tree even if the grammar cannot generate the input sentence. The following two steps solution is proposed: the finest corresponding most probable optimal maximum coverage is generated first, then the trees from this coverage are glued into one resulting tree. We discuss the implementation of this method with the SLP toolkit and libkp library.
