In the Chinese language, a verb may have its dependents on its left, right or on both sides. The ambiguity resolution of right-side dependencies is essential for de- pendency parsing of sentences with two or more verbs. Previous works on shift- reduce dependency parsers may not guar- antee the connectivity of a dependency tree due to their weakness at resolving the right-side dependencies. This paper pro- poses a two-phase shift-reduce dependency parser based on SVM learning. The left- side dependents and right-side nominal de- pendents are detected in Phase I, and right- side verbal dependents are decided in Phase II.
