I want to search such a corpus to determine the commonality or in other terms the frequency of use of the word Quran القرآن in comparison to The Generous Quran القرآن الكريم. But the condition is that this use is by people directly, not embedded in quotes from the Quran itself.

What I want to do is to find out how people refer to the religious text, do they mostly use the title on the cover? Or do they use the word القرآن only.

    Does the phrase القرآن الكريم (with article) occur anywhere in the Qur'an? – fdb Jan 21 '17 at 9:15
  • No it doesn't. What I want to do is to find out how people refer to the religious text, do they mostly use the title on the cover? Or do they use the word القرآن with out الكريم more often. This will help determine the title to be used for the article on the Qur'an in the Arabic Wikipedia. – Mohamed Ahmed Jan 21 '17 at 9:51
  • In that case I really do not understand why you need to exclude Qur'an-quoting texts from your corpus. – fdb Jan 21 '17 at 11:25
  • I want to see the frequency in people's own usage, not in the Qur'an itself. – Mohamed Ahmed Jan 21 '17 at 11:37
  • interesting question, but there's a problem: which language? Arabic? Malay? Englisg? etc. – mobileink Jan 21 '17 at 23:17

This is a list of Arabic corpora, with notes about their origins. While I doubt if any of them specifically exclude Quranic quotations, many of them will be predominantly non-Quranic.

This text in Arabic almost certainly doesn't have any quotes from the Qur'an, also here. If these don't satisfy your criteria, you might want to clarify what kind of corpus and what kind of Arabic you have in mind.

    Aristotle text is not useful I am afraid, I need a considerably large (many resources) general corpus, with the text being put in the modern times and old. – Mohamed Ahmed Jan 21 '17 at 6:32
