Abstract:
This paper describes a large-scale system that performs morphological analysis and generation
of on-line Arabic words represented in the standard orthography, whether fully voweled,
partially voweled or unvoweled .Analvses display the root, pattern and all other affixes together
with feature tags indicating part of speech, person, number, mood, voice, aspect, etc.
The system is based on lexicons and rules from an earlier KIMMO-style two-level
morphological system, reworked extensively using Xerox Finite-State Morphology tools.
The result is an Arabic Finite State Lexical Transducer that is applied with the same runtime
code used for English, French, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Dutch and Italian lexical transducers.
