This paper presents a three-step dependency parser to parse Chinese deterministically. By divid- ing a sentence into several parts and parsing them separately, it aims to reduce the error propagation coming from the greedy characteristic of determi- nistic parsing. Experimental results showed that compared with the deterministic parser which parsed a sentence in sequence, the proposed parser achieved extremely significant improvement on dependency accuracy.
