This paper presents a spoken language processing system for parsing spoken dialogues. The differences between spoken data and written data are clarified. At first, we employ acoustic and prosodic cues to remove noises and identify the linguistic boundaries. Then a fast multi-level chunking-and-raising parser is used to analyze the more "clean" spoken data. The experimental results in parsing a Chinese spoken corpus show that the labeled precision and recall rates are 94.14% and 90.97%, respectively.
