However, with the new technology at our disposal in the form of the Oxford Arabic Corpus and Google, we could certainly see many possibilities for improving and expanding the Arabic framework. We started on the level of the vocabulary, comparing the lemma list of the corpus to the Arabic-Dutch lemma list, and added any lemmas we thought warranted inclusion, like rawwasa to sharpen; to supply with a header.
However, this only discovered words that were already listed in the Buckwalter lexicon. Mohammed Attia, one of our translators and a computational linguist, had developed a system to distil potential lemmas from the corpus by checking frequency and compliance with Arabic morphological patterns Attia et al.
In these ways we managed to expand the lemma list by over 2, entries. At the same time, we pruned entries that were deemed obsolete or archaic, thus removing about four hundred entries from the original Arabic data.
All in all we raised the number of Arabic entries from 24, to 26, Especially on this microstructural level, the Arabic-English dictionary has been greatly expanded compared to its Arabic-Dutch predecessor. Many senses have examples to illustrate typical uses of the headword in that sense.
Idioms are given separately, outside the scope of the senses. Often the translation is useful for the encoding user, and the explanation for the decoding user, with the explanation further specifying the translation, e. The explanation is in brackets in the English-Arabic and in brackets and italics in the Arabic-English.
In the English-Arabic these definitions are in square brackets, in the Arabic-English in italics. Figure 5: An Arabic-English entry with some aspects of its structure illustrated.
They made sure to keep the translation relation between the Arabic and the English in mind, rather than translating from Dutch to English, but the existing Dutch translations were too valuable a tool to disregard. Also, most of the editors had previously worked on the Arabic-Dutch dictionary, so they were familiar with Arabic lexicography and with this specific dictionary. Then all entries were reviewed by native English-speaking Arabists, correcting the English where necessary and further improving the entries.
The latter were weeded out and where needed we replaced the examples by new ones distilled from modern language found in the corpus and Google. Sometimes the corpus showed senses that were not yet listed, and we added those. See figure 5 for an example of an Arabic entry and its structure. For certain fields, namely Medicine, Technology, and Law and Business, bilingual experts were found to advise on the terminology.
The English framework contains field markers for many entries, so exporting all entries in a specific field was easily done. Since, as I stated above, no one is a true native speaker of Arabic, it was important for the translators and reviewers to be able to check the translations not just against their own language sense, but also against a corpus.
Using quotation marks makes it possible to search for exact constructions, enabling translators and reviewers to verify that the translations are actually in use in modern Arabic. All entries were, after translation, reviewed one or more times by revising editors, at least one of which, for every entry, was a native speaker.
Often the reviewer would discuss with the original translator to find the best solution for tricky aspects. See figure 6 for an example of an English-Arabic entry and its structure.
Figure 6: An English-Arabic entry with some of its structure illustrated. The first challenge was the simple fact that Arabic is written from right to left and the letters within a word are joined up.
We had to make sure that the software could deal with English and Arabic, and even with English words inside Arabic tags, and vice versa, which gave the OUP dictionary technology staff no end of work.
One of the largest problems turned out to be any numbers in examples, which in Arabic go in the same direction as in English, but which consistently were turned back to front in Arabic tags, since we had given the instruction that Arabic tags needed to output from right to left!
This worked inasmuch as the numbers came out correctly… however, the rest of the data switched place, so the start of the sentence jumped to after the number and the back to before it. After months of tinkering we eventually had to instruct the typesetters to set all numerals back to front.
An additional complication is that our text is not just Arabic, but half Arabic and half English. Due to the large volume of text, we had to have English and Arabic constantly interplay, rather than having them in separate columns see Figure 7.
Figure 7: Both sides of the dictionary have text running on. The direction of the dictionary is left-to-right, so fitting right-to-left phrases in there was a major challenge, not in the least because some information that is to the right e.
It took many tries and elaborate diagrams until we had all the kinks sorted out. We chose to do this as well, since the advantage of having all words of one root in one outweighs the difficulty a beginner may have in finding the root of a word. This means the Arabic-English side has a kind of double ordering, first the roots in alphabetical order, then a logical order for the words within one root.
Loanwords do not have an Arabic root. For them we listed each written letter as a root letter, and fitted them in into the root system like that.
So one of the challenges for the electronic dictionary was to make it so that the user is able to enter the unvowelled or partially vowelled form of a word, and be redirected to the entry or entries that correspond to that form.
But that is not the biggest challenge.
I mentioned before the many possible surface forms of one lemma. Also, words are often joined together: the article al- is prefixed to the noun or adjective, object and possessive pronouns are suffixed, and some grammatical words like wa- and and li- for are joined to the word following them as well.
For this, we again use the Buckwalter Arabic Morphological Analyzer integrated with our own headword list. Thus the strings are analysed into the appropriate morpheme s and the user will be redirected to the relevant entry.
Despite, or maybe even because of this, it is a fascinating area, where truly significant achievements can be made. With English and Arabic being world languages, and being two of the six official languages of the UN, it is amazing that so few resources exist for translation between the two, with no reasonably modern ones.
We feel that this dictionary fills that hole, and with the opportunity to constantly update that online dictionaries offer, will continue to fill the gap for many years to come.
We hope this look behind the scenes has been interesting for lexicographers and other linguists. Corpus-based lexicography in a language with a long lexicographical tradition: The case of Arabic. Lancaster University, UK.
