The procedure of tagging the dialog act which was labeled by hand was evaluated by the analysis of the prosodic information and keyword recognition for the dialogues of scheduling and travel arrangement domains. It was shown that the integration of prosody and keywords relevant to illocutional force type is effective for dialog tagging of Japanese spontaneous dialogue.
