It is very important to draw out deeply annotated text corpora in order to solve theoretical and applied tasks of the Georgian language. While syntactically annotated corpora are now available for English, Czech, Russian and the other languages, for Georgian they are rare. The environment, developed by our research group, offers several NLP applications, including a module of the morphologic, syntactic and semantic level, a Universal Networking Language interface and a natural language interface to access SQL type databases.

The paper gives the description of the automatic syntactic analyzer of the Georgian Language. It includes syntactic and morphologic levels of the Georgian language model. The basis of the linguistic model of the Georgian text syntax annotation is the dependency grammar.
