In this article we present two grammars (GramCat and GramEsp) for chunking of unrestricted Catalan and Spanish texts. With these grammars we extend the classical notion of chunk as it is defined by Abney, taking advantage of Catalan and Spanish morphosyntactic features: Catalan and Spanish rich inflectional morphology and the high frequency of some prepositional patterns allow us to include both pre- and post-nominal modifiers in the noun phrase.
