REPRESENTATION OF ARABIC WORDS - An Approach Towards Probabilistic Root-Pattern Relationships

Bassam Haddad

Abstract

In the traditional Arabic LP a root-pattern relationship has markedly been considered as a simple relationship, whereas the potential aspect of considering it as a statistical measure has extensively been neglected and even never formally considered. This paper attempts therefore to explore issues involved in considering the classical phenomenon of Arabic root-pattern relationships as probabilistic measures. Novel probabilistic measures in the context of Arabic LP will be introduced with respect of their semantic potential such an uncertain rules to capture root related patterns of word forms probabilistically and to improve morphology related aspects.
