Wikimedia Tunisie/WikiLingua Maghreb/Mission

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

WikiLingua Maghreb







Our mission is to:

  • Give a detailed overview of Tunisian Arabic, Algerian Arabic, and Moroccan Arabic and a general overview of Maghrebi Arabic in Wikipedia using the scholar assisted method explained in this official presentation of the WikiConvention Francophone 2016 and upload old books to Wikisource in order to spread awareness about the value and the distinctive features of the Maghrebi Arabic dialects.
  • Create Wikipedia and Wiktionary in Tunisian Arabic, Algerian Arabic and Moroccan Arabic. Further information about that can be found in a dinner presentation shown in the WikiConvention Francophone 2016.
  • Create a standard variant of Maghrebi Arabic using the methods of the creation of Functional Arabic, of Interlingua, and of unified Basque so that it can be used to create Pan-Maghrebi wikis. Further information is provided in this dinner presentation of the WikiConvention Francophone 2016.
  • Convert Wikidata into a high-scale lexical resource and knowledge database in Arabic dialects and use it for a variety of Natural Language Processing tasks. Further information can be found in this proceedings paper presented during AICCSA 2017 conference.
