Arabic has a unique beauty, poetry and logic. Yet, it is not possible to make easy and meaningful searches in Arabic through standard internet search engines – until now!
Traditional search engines used for English, are deficient in searching through Arabic text. The reason stems from the complexity of Arabic morphology. While an English word typically has five or six inflections - changes in the form of the word giving it extra meaning - Arabic words can have up to 10,000 inflections. The morphology of a language is a basic component in the way search engines operate. In order to conduct proper online search on Arabic text, it is thus necessary to process the text according to Arabic language’s own morphology.
