I am pleased to announce the publication of a new book pertinent to
human language technologies:

*Introduction to Arabic Natural Language Processing[image: no access]*

Nizar Y. Habash



This book provides system developers and researchers in natural
language processing and computational linguistics with the necessary
background information for working with the Arabic language. The goal
is to introduce Arabic linguistic phenomena and review the
state-of-the-art in Arabicprocessing. The book discusses Arabic
script, phonology, orthography, morphology, syntax and semantics, with
a final chapter on machine translation issues. The chapter sizes
correspond more or less to what is linguistically distinctive about
Arabic, with morphology getting the lion's share, followed by Arabic
script. No previous knowledge of Arabic is needed. This book is
designed for computer scientists and linguists alike. The focus of the
book is on Modern Standard Arabic; however, notes on practical issues
related to Arabic dialects and languages written in the Arabic script
are presented in different chapters.
