Chapter Summary

This chapter's objective is the design of a featuring system as a tool for the disambiguation of undesired analysis results in the automated processing of Arabic text data. Considering Modern Standard Arabic language description, the chapter distinguishes three layers of featuring. The chapter discusses feature-sets at morphologic, syntactic, and semantic level. It talks about variables and values of features of importance for the disambiguation of analysis results from the automated processing of contemporary Arabic text data. Morphological feature variables and values serve as input for the syntax level. Feature variables and values from the semantic level help to refine the description of language structure at syntax level to arrive at a single, most probable, syntactically as well as semantically correct, analysis result. At syntax level, the chapter presents structural descriptions of sentence types and basic sentence phrasal constituents in Modern Standard Arabic.

Keywords: Arabic text data; Modern Standard Arabic; morphologic feature variables; semantic feature variables; syntax semantics
