ABSTRACT


Search algorithms play an indispensable role in information retrieval. In this paper, we attempt to define a new useful indexing and search algorithm for Classical Arabic language using Arabic phonetics’ specificities. Our algorithm is based on the classical Soundex algorithm. In fact, we investigate Classical Arabic phonetic features toward words’ phonemes adequate representation. Thus, the algorithm proposed would create a suitable environment for a relevant information retrieval. It would be useful in creating phonetic dictionaries and in coding queries for an effective preprocessing in a spelling corrector.
