The Linguistic Data Consortium (LDC) is pleased to announce the
availability of three new publications.


1. The Buckwalter Arabic Morphological Analyzer Version 1.0 was
created by Tim Buckwalter at Qamus for POS-tagging Arabic text. 
The analyzer consists primarily of three Arabic-English lexicon files:
prefixes, suffixes, and stems. The lexicons are supplemented by three
morphological compatibility tables used for controlling prefix-stem
combinations, stem-suffix combinations, and prefix-suffix combinations.
