This paper presents a statistical speaker intention modeling approach of speech act types (SATís)[1] prediction for large vocabulary Mandarin spoken dialogues. A SAT is an abstraction of speakerís intention in terms of the type of action that the speaker intends by the utterance. With this approach, spoken dialogue systems can be constructed to predict speakerís intention and make a proper action in advance.
