We have designed and developed an incremental parsing
system called SCREEN which processes spoken language
using a hybrid learning architecture. The system receives
spoken input and produces a flat syntactic, semantic
and dialog analysis. This is performed in an incremental
left to right parsing regime. Part of the system is also
a correction component which deals with incremental
ungrammatical phenomena, like interjections, word repairs, 
repetitions, phrase corrections. If you are interested
there is a JAIR journal article and an animation available
from the home page below. This article also contains
many more references on incremental grammatical processing.

hope this helps,

best wishes, 

Stefan Wermter
