This paper studies the role of base-NP in- formation in dependency parsing for Thai. The baseline performance reveals that the base-NP chunking task for Thai is much more difficult than those of some lan- guages (like English). The results show that the parsing performance can be im- proved (from 60.30% to 63.74%) with the use of base-NP chunk information, al- though the best chunker is still far from perfect (Fβ=1 = 83.06%).
