En suivant des opinions émises par Gotthelf Bergsträsser et Angelika Neuwirth, nous explorons dans cet article la possibilité de présenter le texte coranique divisé en "kôlons", c'est-à-dire en brèves unités syntaxiques indépendantes. Concernant la méthode nous recourons au modèle de présentation du texte de l'Ancien Testament proposé par Wolfgang Richter (Biblia Hebraica Transcripta). Ainsi le texte coranique apparaît sous forme de colonnes parallèles en écriture arabe et en transcription. En partant du texte présenté de cette manière, nous proposons une analyse morpho-syntaxique automatisée du texte coranique. Dans ce cas aussi nous adaptons les résultats de la recherche informatique sur l'Ancien Testament effectuée par un groupe travaillant autour de Wolfgang Richter.

Following proposals by Gotthelf Bergsträsser and Angelika Neuwirth, in this paper I will discuss what is involved in presenting the Qur' nic text in a "colometric" way, i.e. divided into small prosodic units that are syntactically independent. In so doing I follow the method applied in the presentation of the text of the Old Testament by Wolfgang Richter (Biblia Hebraica Transcripta). The text will appear in parallel columns, both in Arabic script and in transcription, in accordance with the said colometric division. Based on this presentation, a computer-aided approach to morpho-syntactic analysis will be developed. Again this will be oriented towards the results of research in computational linguistics done by a team working with Wolfgang Richter.
