We present a method for dependency and case structure analysis that captures the consistency between intra-clause relations (i.e., case structures or predicate-argument structures) and inter-clause relations. We assess intra-clause relations on the basis of case frames and inter-clause relations on the basis of transition knowledge be- tween case frames. Both knowledge bases are automatically acquired from a mas- sive amount of parses of a Web corpus. The significance of this study is that the proposed method selects the best depen- dency and case structure that are con- sistent within each clause and between clauses. We confirm that this method con- tributestotheimprovementofdependency parsing of Japanese.
