Title: Introduction to Arabic Natural Language Processing
Written By: Nizar Habash
Edited By: Graeme Hirst
URL: http://www.morganclaypool.com/doi/abs/10.2200/S00277ED1V01Y201008HLT010
Series Title: Synthesis Lectures on Human Language Technologies
Description:

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.

Table of Contents: What is "Arabic"? / Arabic Script / Arabic Phonology and
