Researchers at the Universities of Leeds and Jordan are looking for a
small test corpus (5000+ words) of transcribed Modern Standard Arabic 
(MSA) annotated with PHRASE BREAKS. The latter should delineate 
well-formed, meaningful chunks and should not represent disfluencies. 
To illustrate the kind of thing we are looking for, here is
a single MSA sentence of 48 words:

In this example, only two words are followed by punctuation - and we
have identified these as breaks. In addition, we have also tagged a 
few other words as likely boundary locations. If you know of 
or have such a resource, we would love to hear from you.
