As part of the search for RI information, we present in this paper an approach based on the definitions of Arabic words. In the first phase, our study will focus mainly on the morphological analysis of terms to build adequate definitional formulas; the second phase aims to search for extract the  definitional sentences which will be used to select all the relevant terms to be used for their final restatement.
