Adapting a parser to clinical text by simple pre-processing rules

Sentence types typical to Swedish clinical text were extracted by comparing sentence part-of-speech tag sequences in clinical and in standard Swedish text. Parsings by a syntactic dependency parser, trained on standard Swedish, were manually analysed for the 33 sentence types most typical to clinical text. This analysis resulted in the identification of eight error types, and for two of these error types, pre- processing rules were constructed to improve the performance of the parser. For all but one of the ten sentence types affected by these two rules, the parsing was improved by pre-processing.
