About the Arabic Morphological Analyzer

What you see in the web demo is

  1. A research version of the Arabic morphological analyzer. It's not recent but it's such a popular service that we continue to make it available.

  2. A research application, written on top of the morphological analyzer, that returns English glosses.

  3. A research GUI (graphical user interface) that allows users to input Arabic words and see them rendered in Arabic script.

The research demo, version 0.3, is currently frozen. It is made available for non-commercial testing and consultation with no guarantees or promises of any kind, and the usual legal notices apply. In this demo, the amount of input is artificially limited to prevent commercial (ab)use.

Java Virtual Machine Compatibility

We have received reports of access problems from users of Internet Explorer; the problem appears to be tied to some version or versions of the Java Virtual Machine that insert an extraneous ":-1" port into the query URL when input is sent to the Xerox server for processing. Some users have solved the problem by installing a different version of the Java Virtual Machine, or simply using Mozilla. The following combination of JVM and Internet Explorer 6 have been reported to insert the extraneous ":-1" port.

JVM: Version 1.4.2_04 (build 1.4.2_04-b05)
And Explorer: 6.0.2800.1106.xpsp2.030422-1633


Lexicography and Arabic-language consultation for the research system were provided by Tim Buckwalter. The Arabic "Yarb" font used in the interfaces was created by Yannis Haralambous. System design, interfaces, Arabic-script rendering, and computational linguistics were done by Ken Beesley. Arabic language consulting and lexicography was provided by Martine Pétrod.
