Issues in Arabic Computational Linguistics
For example, generalizations in the form of transformations in a transformational generative framework TG are too powerful a tool for an overall linguistic description;, when a simple machine like a computer failed to decide in a finite time whether or not a certain TG structure was described in the formal implementation of that linguistic description, I opted for a different formalism AGFL 43 to implement a description Ditters , , in terms of a combination of IC and DG.
The objective is to test such a hypothetical description of, in our case, lMSA syntax structure on real data, for example, an Arabic text corpus. It is the machine-readable text data that determine whether a match should occur or not. Once tested, corrected, and refined, the hypothesis has become a theory, certainly for the language structure represented in the test bed in the form of a new hypothesis to be tested on other Arabic text corpora.
Briefly, AGFL is an interwoven two-level context-free grammar formalism 44 with almost context-sensitive properties. On the Chomskian hierarchy of grammars Levelt scale, context-free grammars are, for the description and automated testing of natural language descriptions, really rather nonproblematic. As a matter of fact, Chomsky qualified a context-free grammar as an inadequate descriptive tool for natural languages. However, he never showed, as far as I know, any interest in a combination of two or even more context-free grammars with an almost context-sensitive descriptive power , 46 enough to describe, for example, most of Standard Arabic, including at least parts of its semantic richness.
Furthermore, he never tested, as far as I know, his linguistic hypotheses and theoretical models practically by computational means. A rule-based context-free grammar rewrites one single nonterminal at the left-hand side into one or more nonterminals or lexical entries on the right-hand side.
AGFL, successor of EAG Appendix 1 , is a formalism for the description of programming languages or natural languages in which large context-free grammars can be described in a compact way. Along with attribute grammars 47 and DCGs, AGFLs belong to the family of two-level grammars, the first, context-free level, which accounts for the description of sequential word order of surface natural language elements, is augmented with set-valued features for expressing agreement between constituents and between elements of a constituent as well as linguistic properties including semantic features.
Notational AGFL conventions include the rewrite symbol : , the marking of alternatives ; , the separation of sequences , , the end of a rule. Therefore, the choice of names and terminal values for the elements of the first and second level of description of, for example, MSA, may be as linguistically recognizable as one prefers. We use four types of rules within the AGFL formalism: the so-called hyperrules; metarules; predicate rules; and lexical rules: Variation in the sequence of those elements is dealt with by the formalism. However, as is well-known, natural languages go further than the addition of the meaning of individual elements for capturing the real meaning of the linguistic data concerned.
In Figure 9. It may be clear that the meaning of an utterance does not equal the sum of the meaning of its constituents. Jaszczolt , In a joint contribution to the Nemlar conference Ditters and Koster , 56 we explored the potentiality of the existing approach to MSA syntax for other, socially equally relevant, spinoffs of my description of Arabic for corpus-linguistic analysis purposes. I prefer to finish testing the current implementation hypothesis about MSA syntax on Arabic text data. Second, I should like to refine the verified theory by means of a formal description of MSA syntax for generative purposes.
