We implemented a parser designed to handle ill-formedness in Japanese speech. The parser was evaluated by utilizing newly collected speech data, which was obtained from an experiment designed to produce ill-formed data effectively. Introducing the proposed method increased the number of correctly analyzed utterances from 171 to 322, from among 532 utterances in the corpus.
