Spoken monologues feature greater sen- tence length and structural complexity than do spoken dialogues. To achieve high parsing performance for spoken mono- logues, it could prove effective to sim- plify the structure by dividing a sentence into suitable language units. This paper proposes a method for dependency pars- ing of Japanese monologues based on sen- tence segmentation. In this method, the dependency parsing is executed in two stages: at the clause level and the sen- tence level. First, the dependencies within a clause are identified by dividing a sen- tence into clauses and executing stochastic dependency parsing for each clause. Next, the dependencies over clause boundaries are identified stochastically, and the de- pendency structure of the entire sentence is thus completed. An...
