This paper presents a novel top-down head- driven parsing algorithm for data-driven pro- jective dependency analysis. This algorithm handles global structures, such as clause and coordination, better than shift-reduce or other bottom-up algorithms. Experiments on the English Penn Treebank data and the Chinese CoNLL-06 data show that the proposed algo- rithm achieves comparable results with other data-driven dependency parsing algorithms.
