The current debate regarding the data struc- ture necessary to represent discourse structure, specifically whether tree-structure is sufficient to represent discourse structure or not, is mainly focused on written text. This paper re- views some of the major claims about the structure in discourse and proposes an investi- gation of discourse structure for simultaneous spoken Turkish by focusing on tree-violations and exploring ways to explain them away by non-structural means.
