Abstract:

This book provides system developers and researchers in natural language
processing and computational linguistics with the necessary background
information for working with the Arabic language. The goal is to introduce
Arabic linguistic phenomena and review the state-of-the-art in Arabic
processing. The book discusses Arabic script, phonology, orthography,
morphology, syntax and semantics, with a final chapter on machine
translation issues. The chapter sizes correspond more or less to what is
linguistically distinctive about Arabic, with morphology getting the lion's
share, followed by Arabic script. No previous knowledge of Arabic is needed.

This book is designed for computer scientists and linguists alike.

The focus of the book is on Modern Standard Arabic; however, notes on
practical issues related to Arabic dialects and languages written in the
Arabic script are presented in different chapters.
