Abstract

In this paper, we are going to implement Arabic phonological rules. We will present the speech organs apparatus with a description of Arabic sounds. Then, we will describe the phonological changes and provide a brief linguistic study of such changes. Finally, we will propose two solutions to implement Arabic phonological rules in NooJ. The first solution is a newly developed java module in NooJ platform which deals with phonological rules using an independent formatted file. The second solution uses local grammars within the NooJ platform, to locate anomalies in words and then give the appropriate transformations.
