Description:*Introduction* Buckwalter Arabic Morphological Analyzer Version 1.0 is used for annotating Arabic text with part of speech tags. *Data* The data consists primarily of three Arabic-English lexicon files: prefixes (299 entries), suffixes (618 entries), and stems (82,158 entries representing 38,600 lemmas). The lexicons are supplemented by three morphological compatibility tables used for controlling prefix-stem combinations (1,648 entries), stem-suffix combinations (1,285 entries), and prefix-suffix combinations (598 entries). The actual code for morphology analysis and POS tagging is contained in a Perl script. The documentation consists of a readme file with a description of the lexicon files, the morphological compatibility tables, the morphology analysis algorithm, a summary of stem morphological categories, and a table with the author's Arabic transliteration system. *Updates* There has been a case mismatch in the manner by which six files were named in the data, compared with their names in the documentation and the script, which caused the analyzer to crash on case sensitive systems. This problem has been remedied and you can now download the fixed version of the analyzer. *Licensing* Buckwalter Arabic Morphological Analyzer Version 1.0 is released under the GNU General Public License version 2.
