An Arabic Slot Grammar Parser

We describe a Slot Grammar (SG) parser for Arabic, ASG, and new features of SG designed to accommodate Arabic as well as the European languages for which SGs have been built. We focus on the integration of BAMA with ASG, and on a new, expressive SG grammar formalism, SGF, and illustrate how SGF is used to advantage in ASG.
