Thank you for your response! Is there anyway to prevent sentences like
"_generic_vbd_ is a person." to be parseable where "_generic_vbd_" is being
recognized as a "NN" POS generic? Would this require turning off the
unknown word machinery and adding these generics as lexical entries?

I am interested because the grammaticality of my language model is
important to me. Thanks! Please let me know!
