An Ontology Based Formalism for the Arabic Language Using Verbs and their Derivatives

  title={An Ontology Based Formalism for the Arabic Language Using Verbs and their Derivatives},
  author={Fatma Zohra Belkredim and Ali El Sebai},
Developing a strong and complete lexicon is essential for many Natural Language Processing (NLP) related applications such as Information Retrieval, Question Answering Systems, Natural Language Generation and Machine Translation. Such lexicon should be supported by a strong theoretical framework and implemented using tools that will facilitate its implementation and efficient use both in terms of resources and language preciseness. Recognising the derivative and inflexional nature of the Arabic… 

Figures and Tables from this paper


A computational model for representing Arabic lexicons using ontologies, based on the field theory of semantics from the linguistics domain, is proposed and results of its application on “Time nouns” vocabulary of the Holy Quran are presented.

Ontological Approach Based on Multi-Agent System for Indexing and Filtering Arabic Documents

The aim of this paper is to improve the quality of the indexing process to ensure the accuracy of the information search of relevant documents based on us ers’ multiword queries, and also to reduce indexing and search time.

The Arabic ontology - an Arabic wordnet with ontologically clean content

The ontology provides a formal representation of the concepts that the Arabic terms convey, and its content was built with ontological analysis in mind, and benchmarked to scientific advances and rigorous knowledge sources as much as possible.

Towards Building a Frame-Based Ontology for the Arabic Language

The paper presents a comprehensive introduction of lexical semantics providing examples from the Arabic language, and then surveys works of researchers aiming to build ontologies for the Arabiclanguage.

Applying ontological engineering approach for Arabic Quran corpus: A comprehensive survey

This paper investigates the current studies on the ontological engineering approach and ontology techniques for the Holy Quran by comparing the general criteria such as ontology construction, the domain name in the Quran, and the availability in search index and concludes that there are a lot of researchers presents the ontology in specific domain in the Koran but it is not complete and did not use semantic technology.

Hybrid-Based Approach to Handle Irregular Verb-Subject Agreements in English-Arabic Machine Translation

Arabic is a highly inflectional language, with a rich morphology, relatively free word order, and two types of sentences: nominal and verbal. Arabic natural language processing in general is still

Towards Ontology Construction from Arabic Texts-A Proposed Framework

A framework for ontology construction from Arabic texts based on The Holy Hadith (Sayings of the Prophet Mohammed) is proposed and the state of the art in Arabic ontologyConstruction is summarized.

Arabic Semantic Web Applications - A Survey

The survey presented in this paper concerned with the SW applications regarding the Arabic Language in the domains of Ontology construction and utilization, Arabic WordNet (AWN) exploiting and enrichment, Arabic Named Entities Extraction, Holy Quran and Islamic Knowledge semantic representation, and Arabic Semantic Search Engines.

A hybrid NLP & semantic knowledge-base approach for the intelligent exploration of Arabic documents

This work presents a novel rule-based approach that uses linguistic grammar-based techniques to extract Arabic composite names from Arabic text, which uniquely exploits the genitive Arabic grammar rules, based on the principles of Functional Discourse Grammar.



Building a WordNet for Arabic

A linguistic resource with a deep formal semantic foundation in order to capture the richness of Arabic as described in Elkateb (2005), based on the widely used Princeton WordNet for English.

Introducing the Arabic WordNet project

The approach towards building a lexical resource in Standard Arabic will be based on the design and contents of the universally accepted Princeton WordNet and will be mappable straightforwardly onto PWN 2.0 and EuroWordNet, enabling translation on the lexical level to English and dozens of other languages.

Arabic GramCheck: a grammar checker for Arabic

An attempt at developing a grammar checker program for Modern Standard Arabic, called Arabic GramCheck, which covers a well‐formed subset of Arabic and focuses on people trying to write in a formal style.

An Arabic Morphological System

A two-way Arabic morphological system (analysis/generation) capable of dealing with vowelized, semivowelized, and nonvowelization Arabic words was developed at the IBM Cairo Scientific Center.

Building a Shallow Arabic Morphological Analyser in One Day

The paper presents a rapid method of developing a shallow Arabic morphological analyzer based on automatically derived rules and statistics that will only be concerned with generating the possible roots of any given Arabic word.

A portable natural language interface from Arabic to SQL

An Arabic Front End has been built that takes an input sentence, producing syntactic and semantic representations, which it maps into First Order Logic and focuses on the extraction of morphemes from the various inflexions or forms of any Arabic word.
