We describe a morpho-syntactic analyzer for the Italian language. This system integrates a lexical data-base handling about 2,000,000 forms and a probabilistic syntactic parser. It is intended to provide linguistic information for the tasks of speech recognition and text-to-speech synthesis. A description of the two components, experimental results and performances of the whole system are given.
