• The verb phrase parser is called (with tok1 as an argument) to parse the verb phrase. Since the verb phrase is passive, tok1 is attached to it as the obj case argument.
      tok    support
      lframe np
      mainvb supported
      aux    (is)
      trans  t
      pasv   t
      obj    tok1

  • vpmod is called to parse modifiers of the verb phrase. It attempts to parse the prepositional phrase, which causes the noun phrase ``a man'' to be parsed.
      tok    person
      lframe np
      word   man
      mods   ((restrict (sex male))
              (restrict (age adult)))
      nbr    (ns)
      sframe physent
      rfnt   (person6)
