Abstract : Dependency parsing is a form of syntactic parsing of natural language based on the theoretical tradition of dependency grammar [4]. It is a process of analyzing the dependency structure of a sentence. Tamil is always head-final language. The verb comes at the end of the clause with a typical word order of Subject Object Verb (SOV) . However, Tamil language allows word order to be changed, making it a relatively word order free language. In Sangam literature poems the syntactic structure are more complex due to this relatively free word order nature of Tamil language. Dependency grammar is better suited for languages with free or flexible word order. Dependency parser for the contemporary Tamil language has been already developed [5]. This paper proposes a dependency parser for Tamil classical literature – kurunthokai
