Description In this paper we present tools prepared for morphological and syntactic processing of Slovak: a model trained for tagging by the RFTagger and two syntactic analyzers Synt and SET for which we adapted their Czech grammars for Slovak. We describe the training process of RFTagger using the r-mak corpus and modifications of both parsers that have been performed partially in the lexical analysis and mainly in the formal grammars used in both systems. Finally we provide an evaluation of both tagging and parsing, the latter on two datasets – a phrasal and dependency treebank of Slovak.
