Hello Khalid and Kais;

At some stage in past I used python in experimenting with the corpus file. You 
can see one such example on page 40 of my transfer report (verse similarity 

also, I experimented with Perl and produced few tutorial files here (which I 
did not continue later..)

currently I am experimenting with PhP and MySql

Subject: Using Python with the Quranic Arabic Corpus

Hello Khalid Amin,

I am afraid I'm not yet a professor, although hopefully one day! :-) I
myself tend to use Java, given my programming background, however I do
appreciate that Python is quite popular with NLP these days.

I've forwarded your question about using Python with the Quranic
Arabic Corpus to the mail discussion list:


Hopefully some one will get back to you, and also reply to the mailing
list to let us know.  One option is to download the data files from
the Quranic Arabic Corpus download page:
http://corpus.quran.com/download, and then write a simple python
script to parse the data line-by-line (it should be straightforward if
you just need basic word tags for example).

Abdul-Baquee - I'm not sure, do you use Python to get access to the
Quranic Arabic Corpus data?

Kind Regards,
