Abstract

We investigate the performance of an easy-first, non-directional dependency parser on the Hebrew Dependency treebank. We show that with a basic feature set the greedy parser's accuracy is on a par with that of a first-order globally optimized MST parser. The addition of morphological-agreement feature improves the parsing accuracy, making it on-par with a second-order globally optimized MST parser. The improvement due to the morphological agreement information is persistent both when gold-standard and automatically-induced morphological information is used.
