    Abstract

    The Arabic language is a highly derivational and inflexional language in which morphology plays a significant role. However, a large number of the derivations obey a set of pre-defined rules and when applied, do not only produce a set of related words but also associate contextual and semantic knowledge to these words. In this paper, we describe the Meta-Ontology DEAR-ONTO, A DErivational ARabic Ontology used to model the Arabic Language. The Meta-Ontology uses verbs as roots and identifies the various classes formed by the derived words. Some of the possible applications of the DEAR-Ontology are discussed.
