The Treatment of Gerund Forms for Arabic Nouns with LKB System

Samia Ben Ismail, Sirine Boukédi, Kais Haddar

Abstract

The treatment of morphological phenomena is important in Natural Language Processing (NLP), especially using a unification grammar. In Arabic grammar, the gerund is considered one of the most delicate morphological structures since it changes the grammatical category. Thus, we present in this paper, a Head-driven Phrase Structure Grammar (HPSG), treating Arabic gerund forms. The elaborated grammar is specified with Type Description Language (TDL) and validated on Linguistic Knowledge Building (LKB) system. The obtained results were encouraging, which proves the effectiveness of our system.
