Do you have any idea what a fault tolerant parser is? 

It doesn't have anything to do with fuzzy logic if you're curious.

Such a parser isn't exactly something you can hack together. If that were the 
case we would be seeing several high quality NLP tools arising from the works 
of sourceforge crowd, which is not the case.

I doubt you know enough of language theory to talk about it.
