The rst step towards a wide-coverage tableau prover for natural logic is presented. We describe an automatized method for obtaining Lambda Logical Forms from surface forms and use this method with an implemented prover to hunt for new tableau rules in textual entailment data sets. The collected tableau rules are presented and their usage is also exemplified in several tableau proofs. The performance of the prover is evaluated against the development data sets. The evaluation results show an extremely high precision above 97% of the prover along with a decent recall around 40%.
