The Holy Quran exhibits the powerful rhetorical techniques of classical Arabic; one of these techniques is the use of semantic opposition. Semantic opposition as a sub-field of structural linguistics, studies the relation between words based on a set of properties or features. In order to automatically identify semantic opposition terms in the Holy Quran, Semantic Web techniques (i.e. ontologies) can be used to represent semantic opposition. This paper presents a work-in-progress project for building a framework for recognizing and identifying semantic opposition terms using Natural Language processing armed with domain ontologies.
