Arabic corpus of the Quran
The Quran annotated corpus is an Arabic corpus built up from the Quran, the central religious text of Islam. This Quran corpus version was prepared by Zainab Alqassem (Alqassem 2013). The data was taken from the Quranic Arabic Corpus (Dukes 2009) and the QurAna anaphoric coreference database (Sharaf and Atwell 2012). Corpus texts were lemmatized and POS tagged.
The morphological annotation in the corpus uses POS tagset specially created for the Quranic Arabic Corpus.
