We explore the contribution of different lexical and inflectional morphological features to dependency parsing of Arabic, a morphologically rich language. We experiment with all leading POS tagsets for Arabic, and introduce a few new sets. We show that training the parser using a simple regular expressive extension of an impoverished POS tagset with high prediction accuracy does better than using a highly informative POS tagset with only medium prediction accuracy, although the latter performs… CONTINUE READING
