This work falls within the framework of the Arabic natural language processing. We are interested in parsing Arabic texts. Existing parsers generate parse trees that give an idea about the structure of the sentence without considering the syntactic functions specific to the Arabic language. Thus, the results are still insufficient in terms of syntactic information. The system we have developed in this article takes into consideration all these syntactic functions. This system begins with a morphological analysis in the context. Then, it uses a CFG grammar to extract the phrases and ends by exploiting the formalism of unification grammar and traditional grammar to combine these phrases and generate the final sentence structure.
