In this paper we present a parsing framework for extensions of Tree Adjoining Grammar (TAG) called TuLiPA (Tšubingen Linguistic
Parsing Architecture). In particular, besides TAG, the parser can process Tree-Tuple MCTAG with Shared Nodes (TT-MCTAG), a TAGextension
which has been proposed to deal with scrambling in free word order languages such as German. The central strategy of the parser
is such that the incoming TT-MCTAG (or TAG) is transformed into an equivalent Range Concatenation Grammar (RCG) which, in turn,
is then used for parsing. The RCG parser is an incremental Earley-style chart parser. In addition to the syntactic anlysis, TuLiPA computes
also an underspecified semantic analysis for grammars that are equipped with semantic representations.
