The translation based language model (TRLM) is state-of-the-art method to solve the lexical gap problem of the question retrieval in the community-based question answering (cQA). Some researchers tried to find methods for solving the lexical gap and improving the TRLM. In this paper, we propose a new dependency based model (DM) for the question retrieval. We explore how to utilize the results of a dependency parser for cQA. Dependency bigrams are extracted from the dependency parser and the language model is transformed using the dependency bigrams as bigram features. As a result, we obtain the significant improved performances when TRLM and DM approaches are effectively combined.
