The Categorial Annotation of Coordination in Arabic

Ismaïl Biskri, Boucif Amar Bensaber

The model of categorial grammars is a sufficiently flexible model to give an account of several languages and several forms of organisation of the linguistic units of these languages (coordination, subordination, etc). However, the research tasks were limited almost exclusively to European languages. A language like Arabic, in spite of the richness of the tradition of its schools of thought, which go back for several centuries, remains unexplored by this current. In our article, we show how the model of Applicative Combinatory Categorial Grammar can give an account of categorial annotation of Arabic, in particular of certain forms of Arabic coordination.
