This paper describes a linguistic platform, Xerox Incremental Parser (XIP hereafter), to develop robust grammars. Most robust parsers usually impose one specific strategy (constraint-based or incremental) in the grammar writing, whereas XIP allows mixing both types of analysis. The first part introduces XIP and its main functionalities. The second part illustrates how a linguist can benefit from merging different strategies in grammar writing. Finally, a first evaluation of different grammars is given.
