HPSG Grammars of Hebrew and Arabic

Project description

To develop wide coverage HPSG grammars of Modern Hebrew and Modern Standard Arabic.
In Haifa, Petter Haugereid, Tali Arad Greshler, Livnat Herzig Sheinfux and Shuly Wintner. In collaboration with Nurit Melnik, the Open University.
Israeli Science Foundation (grant 505/11)


The main objective of this project is to develop parallel large-scale precision grammars for two related yet different languages, namely Modern Hebrew and Modern Standard Arabic. The grammars will cover the most frequent syntactic phenomena in both languages, but also rarer phenomena that are of linguistic interest. Furthermore, the grammars will be linked with morphological processors that will guarantee broad coverage and robustness of the ensuing parsers.


The grammars are available for download. They are distributed under the MIT License.
