NAME

Lingua::AR::Tashkeel - Subroutines for handling Arabic Vowels and Vowel marks

SYNOPSIS

    use Lingua::AR::Tashkeel qw(strip prune fix);

    # Strip all short vowels
    strip('مَكَرُونَة'); ‎# => مكرونة
    # Heuristic for removing short vowels without causing ambiguity
    prune('فَتَّة');    ‎# => فتّة
    # Heuristic for fixing mixed up short and long vowels
    fix('ماحشي');    ‎# => مَحشي 

DESCRIPTION

Subroutines for working with Arabic long (حروف علة) and short vowels (حركات تشكيل)

METHODS AND ARGUMENTS

strip($string)

Strips away all Arabic short vowels (Tashkeel).

prune($string)

Heuristic for pruning the short vowels that a native speaker wouldn't write, as leaving them out wouldn't introduce ambiguity.

This is often preferable to strip, as Shaddas, or Dammas that indicate a passive verb are useful clues that one might want to keep.

fix($string)

Transliterating from a romanized representation of Arabic to actual Arabic script often gives incorrect results regarding short/long vowels.

This subroutine implements a heuristic for fixing such mix ups.
