We present MAGEAD, a morphological analyzer and generator for the Arabic lan- guage family. Our work is novel in that it explicitly addresses the need for pro- cessing the morphology of the dialects. MAGEAD performs an on-line analysis to or generation from a root+pattern+features representation, it has separate phonologi- cal and orthographic representations, and it allows for combining morphemes from different dialects. We present a detailed evaluation of MAGEAD.
