   and one advanced) to help them parse corpora and build NLP
   applications using NooJ.

   - Present NooJ's Arabic resources to all researchers in Arabic
   studies : linguists, computational linguists as well as all
   researchers who work with/on Arabic corpora.

NooJ is a freeware, linguistic engineering development environment
used to formalize various types of textual phenomena (orthography,
lexical and productive morphology, local, structural and
transformational syntax) using a large gamut of computational devices
(from Finite-State Automata to Augmented Recursive Transition
Networks). NooJ includes tools to construct, test, debug, maintain and
accumulate large sets linguistic resources, and can apply them to
large texts.

Modules for a dozen languages are already available for free download:
Arabic, Armenian, Bulgarian, Catalan, Chinese, English, French,
Hebrew, Hungarian, Italian, Polish, Portuguese and Spanish. A dozen
other modules are under construction.
