Starting from a dependency parsing approach, we explore different ways of integrating morphological features into the model. We proposed joint morphological and syntactic analysis as a way of improving parsing accuracy for richly inflected languages. We also investigate the use of morphological analyzers to provide constraints and the use of word clusters. Evaluation on five morphologically rich languages shows consistent improvements in both morphological and syntactic accuracy for joint prediction over a pipeline model, with further improvements due to lexical constraints. The final results improve the state of the art in dependency parsing for all five languages.
