Word Sense Disambiguation Approach for Arabic Text

Nadia Bouhriz, Faouzia Benabbou, El Habib
2016 International Journal of Advanced Computer Science and Applications  
Word Sense Disambiguation (WSD) consists of identifying the correct sense of an ambiguous word occurring in a given context.  ...  Most of Arabic WSD systems are based generally on the information extracted from the local context of the word to be disambiguated.  ...  /safar/publications.php correctly disambiguated divided by the number of all ambiguous words.  ...

Arabic Word Sense Disambiguation Using Wikipedia

Marwah Alian, Arafat Awajan Awajan, Akram Al-Kouz Al-Kouz
2016 International Journal of Computing and Information Sciences  
In this research we introduce a new approach for Arabic word disambiguation by utilizing Wikipedia as the lexical resource for disambiguation.  ...  The nearest context for an ambiguous word is selected using Vector Space Model and cosine similarity between the word's context and the retrieved senses from Wikipedia.  ...  The ambiguous words that were determined in phase one are passed to this phase to retrieve their senses from Arabic Wikipedia as a resource for disambiguation.  ...

Word Sense Disambiguation of Arabic Language with Word Embeddings as Part of the Creation of a Historical Dictionary

Rim Laatar, Chafik Aloulou, Lamia Hadrich Belguith
2017 Conference on Language Processing and Knowledge Management  
As part of these steps, the extracting of the appropriate meaning of a given word occurring in a given context, named also word sense disambiguation (WSD).  ...  The main idea is to exploit vectors as word representations in a multidimensional space in order to capture the semantic and syntactic properties of words.  ...  Here, we propose to define our method for Arabic word sense disambiguation based on words embedding. The first step of the proposed method is to train Arabic corpus.  ...

Lexical Disambiguation of Arabic Language: An Experimental Study

Laroussi Merhben, Anis Zouaghi, Mounir Zrigui
2012 POLIBITS Research Journal on Computer Science and Computer Engineering With Applications  
In this paper we test some supervised algorithms that most of the existing related works of word sense disambiguation have cited.  ...  Due to the lack of linguistic data for the Arabic language, we work on non-annotated corpus and with the help of four annotators; we were able to annotate the different samples containing the ambiguous  ...  The word sense disambiguation (WSD) allows us to find the most appropriate sense of the ambiguous word.  ...

A Hybrid Approach for the Morpho-Lexical Disambiguation of Arabic

2016 Journal of Information Processing Systems  
As to its evaluation, we tried the disambiguation on the online Alkhalil morphological analyzer (the proposed approach can be used on any morphological analyzer of the Arabic language) and obtained encouraging  ...  In order to considerably reduce the ambiguity rate, we propose in this article a disambiguation approach that is based on the selection of the right diacritics at different analysis levels.  ...  Properly determining the meaning of an ambiguous word is not as simple as it appears. What should be done to disambiguate a word?  ...

Lexical Ambiguity in Arabic Information Retrieval: The Case of Six Web-Based Search Engines

Abdulfattah Omar, Mohammed Aldawsari
2020 International Journal of English Linguistics  
To date, lexical ambiguity has been one of the most frequently reported problems in the Arabic IR systems despite the development of different word sense disambiguation (WSD) techniques.  ...  Results indicate that lexical ambiguities in Arabic IR applications are mainly due to the unique morphological and orthographic system of the Arabic language, in addition to its diglossia and the multiple  ...  One major problem with knowledge-based approaches, however, is that they are based only on words to disambiguate target words.  ...

Word Sense Disambiguation Techniques for Indian and other Asian Languages: A Survey

Mulkalapalli Srinivas, B. Padmaja
2016 International Journal of Computer Applications  
Word sense disambiguation is a method of determining the appropriate sense of a polysemous word in the context. WSD is almost finished for English.  ...  Finally, we have discussed about WSD for other Asian languages like Nepali, Arabic and Myanmar.  ...  Figure 2 provides a detailed method used by them to disambiguate the ambiguous Arabic words.  ...

Homograph Disambiguation through Selective Diacritic Restoration

Sawsan Alqahtani, Hanan Aldarmaki, Mona Diab
2019 Proceedings of the Fourth Arabic Natural Language Processing Workshop  
Lexical ambiguity, a challenging phenomenon in all natural languages, is particularly prevalent for languages with diacritics that tend to be omitted in writing, such as Arabic.  ...  In this paper, we propose approaches for automatically marking a subset of words for diacritic restoration, which leads to selective homograph disambiguation.  ...  Incidentally, MULTI has the highest rate of ambiguous words, which leads to more disambiguation through diacritization.  ...

Generating sense inventories for ambiguous arabic words

Marwah Alian, Arafat Awajan
2021 ˜The œinternational Arab journal of information technology  
The resulted inventories from the pre-trained embeddings are evaluated to investigate their efficiency in Arabic word sense disambiguation and sentence similarity.  ...  The process of selecting the appropriate meaning of an ambigous word according to its context is known as word sense disambiguation.  ...  Word Sense Disambiguation We use 86 sentences with ambiguous words from the Arabic paraphrasing benchmark [3] to evaluate WSD with the retrieved senses from the sense inventory.  ...

The Role of Context in Neural Morphological Disambiguation

Qinlan Shen, Daniel Clothiaux, Emily Tagtow, Patrick Littell, Chris Dyer
2016 International Conference on Computational Linguistics  
While morphological analyzers can reduce this sparsity by providing morpheme-level analyses for words, they will often introduce ambiguity by returning multiple analyses for the same surface form.  ...  The problem of disambiguating between these morphological parses is further complicated by the fact that a correct parse for a word is not only dependent on the surface form but also on other words in  ...  This is likely because of the greater ambiguity of Arabic (9.11 parses per word), which stems in part from the absence of vowels in Arabic writing.  ...

Parsing Arabic Nominal Sentences with Transducers to Annotate Corpora

Nadia Ghezaiel Hammouda, Kais Haddar
2018 Journal of Computacion y Sistemas  
Studying Arabic nominal sentences is important to analyze and annotate successfully Arabic corpora. This type of sentences is frequent in Arabic text and speech.  ...  In fact, this approach allows the annotation of Arabic nominal sentences but also the Arabic verbal ones.  ...  It can cause lexical ambiguities because a word in Arabic language can be read differently in a sentence, depending on its context.  ...
