The use of prosody in Japanese dependency structure analysis

Kazuhiko Ozeki, Kazuyuki Takagi, Hajime Kubota

Natural language processing has traditionally relied solely on information extracted from written materials. Recently, as part of natural language processing and speech processing merge into spoken language processing, a new possibility is opening up to exploit prosodic information, which is lost when utterances are transcribed into letters or characters, for language processing. Such a possibility is worth pursuing from both linguistic and technological points of view. This paper focuses on syntactic information contained in prosodic features extracted from read Japanese sentences, and describes a method of exploiting it in dependency structure analysis.
