Promotion of disfluency in syntactic parallelism

Andrew A. Cooper, John T. Hale

The development of a disfluency-robust speech parser requires some insight into where disfluencies occur in spontaneous spoken language. This corpus study deals with one syntactic variable which is predictive of disfluency location: syntactic parallelism. A formal definition of syntactic parallelism is used to show that syntactic parallelism is indeed predictive of disfluency.
