This tool allows you to explore the distributional semantics for the holy Quran’s words, and in particular syntagmatic relations between these words.
A workshop entitled “The role of corpora in Arabic language research – new research orientations” will be held next Wednesday, the 5th of November, at Princess Noura bent AbdulRahman University, as part of Al-Jazeerah Research Chair activities.
Female participants are welcomed.
The Al-Jazeera Newspaper Research Chair for Linguistic Studies is willing to sponsor any research related to using KSUCCA in Arabic linguistic studies. If you have any research idea please contact us.
We were honored to participate in NOORIC’1435-2013.
You can find the research paper here.

SkE offers a wide range of interesting functionality, and you can try it freely for 30 days.
You can download it together with the user manual from Sourceforge:
The tool is not just a concordance; it has many good features such as frequency lists generation and collocation extraction. In addition, it has been tested on English and French as well. However, the interface of the tool together with the user manual are written in Arabic. Hopefully, they will provide an English version soon.
It was a pleasant and very informative workshop, and personally I have enjoined and benefited from Dr. Abdulmuhsin Althubaity, Dr. Saleh Alosaimy and the comments from the attendance.
I’ve written some recommendations, which might be helpful:
