I'm interrested by your approach. I'm working on arabization of a library
software and one of my problem is to deal with article. I need to know when an
Al is an article (so as to sort title without article) or when it's part of a
word. I think you have this kind of problem with dictionnary. The only solution
I saw right now is to have a list of the word beginning with al so as to sort
Almania with alef and Al chams with Ch. Do you think this is a good way to start ?
