Abstract: In this short paper, we demonstrate that the popular penalized estimation method typically used for variable selection in parametric or semiparametric models can actually provide a way to identify linear components in additive models. Unlike most studies in the literature, we are NOT performing variable selection. Due to the difficulty in a priori deciding which predictors should enter the partially linear additive model as the linear components, such a method will prove useful in practice.
