In this paper we present Morphy, an inte- grated tool for German morphology, part-of- speech tagging and context-sensitive lem- matization. Its large lexicon of more than 320,000 word forms plus its ability to pro- cess German compound nouns guarantee a wide morphological coverage. Syntactic ambiguities can be resolved with a standard statistical part-of-speech tagger. By using the output of the tagger, the lemmatizer can determine the correct root even for ambi- guous word forms. The complete package is freely available and can be downloaded from the World Wide Web.
