is it possible to get MRS/XML output out of PET?  The LKB functionality is now 
there, so presumably it's just a matter of invoking it, but I don't know 
whether anyone has incorporated that as an option.  Is there a way of also 
getting the lexical items used in a parse - e.g., derivation structures?  If 
so, would someone let me know how, please (preferably just telling me what to 
type in - I won't be worried that anyone will underestimates my competence 
with PET ...)

The background to this is experiments an MPhil student here has been doing on 
machine learning generator trigger rules.  Up till now, he's worked with the 
LKB, but larger scale experiments would be useful.  The lexical items output 
is needed so we can work out which null semantics items are involved in the
