We present a two-stage multilingual de- pendency parsing system submitted to the Multilingual Track of CoNLL-2007. The parser first identifies dependencies using a deterministic parsing method and then labels those dependencies as a sequence labeling problem. We describe the features used in each stage. For four languages with differ- ent values of ROOT, we design some spe- cial features for the ROOT labeler. Then we present evaluation results and error analyses focusing on Chinese.
