Parsing disfluent sentences is a challeng- ing task which involves detecting disflu- encies as well as identifying the syntactic structure of the sentence. While there have been several studies recently into solely detecting disfluencies at a high perfor- mance level, there has been relatively lit- tle work into joint parsing and disfluency detection that has reached that state-of- the-art performance in disfluency detec- tion. We improve upon recent work in this joint task through the use of novel features and learning cascades to produce a model which performs at 82.6 F-score. It outper- forms the previous best in disfluency de- tection on two different evaluations.
