This paper overviews FBK’s participation in the RTE 5 Evaluation Campaign. Our runs, submitted both to the main (two-way classification), and to the pilot task, were obtained through different configurations of EDITS (Edit Distance Textual Entailment Suite) package, the first freely available open source RTE software. The main sources of knowledge used, the different configurations, and the achieved results are described, together with ablation tests representing a preliminary analysis of the actual contribution of different resources to the RTE task.
