      An extended, revised form of Tim Buckwalter's Arabic lexical and morphological resource AraMorph, eXtended Revised AraMorph (henceforth XRAM), is presented which addresses a number of weaknesses and inconsistencies of the original model by allowing a wider coverage of real-world Classical and contemporary (both formal and informal) Arabic texts. Building upon previous research, XRAM enhancements include (i) flag-selectable usage markers, (ii) probabilistic mildly context-sensitive POS tagging, filtering, disambiguation and ranking of alternative morphological analyses, (iii) semi-automatic increment of lexical coverage through extraction of lexical and morphological information from existing lexical resources. Testing of XRAM through a front-end Python module showed a remarkable success level.
