This paper explores joint syntactic and seman- tic parsing of Chinese to further improve the performance of both syntactic and semantic parsing, in particular the performance of se- mantic parsing (in this paper, semantic role labeling). This is done from two levels. Firstly, an integrated parsing approach is proposed to integrate semantic parsing into the syntactic parsing process. Secondly, semantic informa- tion generated by semantic parsing is incorpo- rated into the syntactic parsing model to better capture semantic information in syntactic parsing. Evaluation on Chinese TreeBank, Chinese PropBank, and Chinese NomBank shows that our integrated parsing approach outperforms the pipeline parsing approach on n-best parse trees, a natural extension of the widely used pipeline...
