This paper describes the participation of Bar-Ilan university in the sixth RTE challenge. Our textual-entailment engine, BiuTee , was enhanced with new components that introduce chaining of lexical-entailment rules, and tackle the problem of approximately matching the text and the hy- pothesis after all available knowledge of entailment rules was utilized. We have also re-engineered our system aiming at an open-source open architecture. BiuTee’s performance is better than the median of all-submissions, and outperforms significantly an IR-oriented baseline.
