A great free tool for processing Arabic corpora

Dr. Abdulmohsen Althubaity and his research team at King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology KACST finally published their Arabic ؤorpora processing tool called Alghawas, Diver in English.

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.
