ArabTAG V2.0 (Arabic Tree Adjoining Grammar) is an electronic tree adjoining grammar for Modern Standard Arabic. This resource partly reuses the per-existing modeling in “ArabTAG” by F. Ben Fraj. Unlike this manually constructed grammar, the new version ArabTAG V2.0 is generated semi-automatically from a meta-grammatical description of the syntax and semantics of Arabic using XMG (eXtensible MetaGrammar) formalism.
