We describe and evaluate several methods for estimating the confidence in the per-edge cor- rectness of a predicted dependency parse. We show empirically that the confidence is asso- ciated with the probability that an edge is se- lected correctly and that it can be used to de- tect incorrect edges very efficiently. We eval- uate our methods on parsing text in 14 lan- guages.
