A Survey and Classification of Arabic Logic-Based Meaning Representations (ALMR)

Haytham El-Sayed
Abstract—This paper provides a comprehensive survey and classification scheme of attempts to provide logical treatment to Arabic semantics, thereby developing Arabic semantic processing, during the past thirty years. The efforts of Arabic logic-based meaning representation are very limited. However, Badr Al-Johar and Jim McGregor (1997), Bassam Haddad and Mustafa Yaseen (2001-2007), and Haytham El-Sayed (2011, 2015), can be considered good starting points. Shading the light on these works structure and limitations is needed for better improvements, and developing an adequate logic-based model, of semantic processing for Arabic. Establishing a research community that combines Arab logicians, linguists and computer scientists has become increasingly necessary for high level, and amount, of achievements in this prominent interdisciplinary research area.

Index Terms—Arabic LMR, syntax-semantics representation, Arabic semantic processing, Montague grammar.
