It is widely known that chunking is beneficial to syntactic analysis. This paper introduces a method of chunking thai is useful for structural analysis of sentences in Korean. Dependent nouns in Korean usually tend to make sentences complex and long. By performing chunking operations related with dependent nouns, it is possible to reduce sentence complexity and thus make syntactic analysis easier. With this aim in mind we investigated techniques for chunking related with dependent nouns. We proposed a variety of chunking schemes according to the types of dependent nouns. The experiments showed that carrying out chunking leads to significant improvement of performance in syntactic analysis for Korean.
