In this paper we present a system submitted to the CoNLL Shared Task 2009 performing the identifi- cation and labeling of syntactic and semantic depen- dencies in multiple languages. Dependencies are truly jointly learned, i.e. as if they were a single task. The system works in two phases: a classifica- tion phase in which three classifiers predict different types of information, and a ranking phase in which the output of the classifiers is combined.
