This paper gives a new definition of Chi- nese clause called ”Event Descriptive Clause” and proposes an automatic me- thod to identify these clauses in Chinese sentence. By analyzing the characteristics of the clause, the recognition task is formu- lated as a classification of Chinese punctua- tions. The maximum entropy classifier is trained and two kinds of useful features and their combinations are explored in the task. Meanwhile, a simple rule-based post processing phase is also proposed to im- prove the recognition performance. Ulti- mately, we obtain 81.32% F-score on the test set.
