Yunir.jl is a lightweight toolkit for Arabic Natural Language Processing (ANLP). It offers APIs for the building blocks of ANLP specifically dediacritization, normalization, transliteration (including custom transliteration), simple encoding, and orthographical analysis.

Yunir (ينير) /yunīr/ is the Arabic word for "illuminate." The logo is a Kufic calligraphy of the Arabic word نور /nūr/ or "light," specifically, a heatless light such as that of the light of the moon.


Yunir.jl can be installed as follows:

julia> using Pkg
