Arabic is a semitic language (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hamito-Semitic).

- apertium-ara-heb in incubator: https://svn.code.sf.net/p/apertium/svn/incubator/apertium-ara-heb
Developing other semitic language pairs with Arabic would be a good idea (e.g. Tamazight).
- Sarf - Arabic Morphology System (all in Java...)
- AraMorph - Perl - An Arabic morphological analyzer and part-of-speech tagger written in Perl (originally by Tim Buckwalter, see http://www.qamus.org/morphology.htm)
- AraMorph - Java - An Arabic morphological analyzer and part-of-speech tagger rewritten in Java for Lucene
- Arabic dictionaries, by Jon Dehdari, for the Link-Grammar parser. These require the Aramorph stemming package, above.
- ElixirFM (online interface here) is a Functional Arabic Morphology written in Haskell and Perl; the lexicon is a "re-processed" version of the Buckwalter analyser.
- There is a good documentation of how to make a morphological analyser for Arabic (and Semitic languages in general) in the Beesley/Karttunen finite state transducer book, documenting the Xerox compiler (Ken Beesley also made an Arabic fst). Also, there now is an open source compiler reading the Xerox format, the HFST compiler.
- And there is also an open source finite state morphological analyser for Arabic, AraComLex (online interface here). Among other resources related to AraComLex there is a list of Arabic morphological patterns and a frequency word list from a 1 billion word corpus.
