Abstract We describe the construction of a large lexicalized tree adjoining grammar for Italian, automatically extracted from an annotated corpus. We first introduce the TUT, a dependency style treebank for Italian, then we illustrate the algorithm that we have designed to extract the grammar, and finally we report two experiments about parsing complexity and coverage of the extracted grammar.
