 The script takes a list of treebank files as arguments
 and extracts the terminal strings from them, runs the two-stage parser
 on those terminal strings and then evaluates the parsing accuracy with
-the U. Penn EVAL-B program.  For example, on my machine the Penn
+the Sparseval program[*].  For example, on my machine the Penn
 Treebank 3 CD-ROM is installed at /usr/local/data/Penn3/, so the
 following code evaluates the two-stage parser on section 24.
