Parsing spontaneous speech is a difficult task because of the ungrammatical nature of most spoken utterances. To overpass this problem, we propose in this paper to handle the spoken language without considering syntax. We describe thus a microsemantic parser which is uniquely based on an associative network of semantic priming. Experimental results on spontaneous speech show that this parser stands for a robust alternative to standard ones.
