This study aims to improve the performance of identifying grammatical functions between an adnoun clause and a noun phrase in Korean. The key task is to determine the relation between the two constituents in terms of such functional categories as subject, object, adverbial, and appositive. The problem is mainly caused by the fact that functional morphemes, which are considered to be crucial for identifying the relation, are frequently omitted in the noun phrases. To tackle this problem, we propose to employ the Support Vector Machines(SVM) in determining the grammatical functions. Through an experiment with a tagged corpus for training SVMs, the proposed model is found to be useful.
