ALKHALEEL: A CORPUS-BASED LEARNING TOOL FOR ARABIC

H. Harmain

United Arab Emirates University (UNITED ARAB EMIRATES)
Language learning has been greatly facilitated by the availability of electronic resources. In particular, electronic dictionaries, corpora, concordances, and word frequency lists have been very helpful for language teachers and learners at the same time. In this paper we introduce an innovative tool that combines several Arabic language resources and analysis tools in one environment and discuss how these tools are used in the context of Arabic language learning. The tool accepts texts in different formats including HTML, XML, plain text, and MS Word documents. It can be used to perform simple text analysis such as calculating word frequencies and concordances, or to perform more sophisticated analysis using Natural Language Processing techniques for morphological analysis. The tool also includes an Arabic electronic dictionary to allow learners search for word meanings by selecting any word in their text.
