Subroutines for working with Arabic long (حروف علة) and short vowels (حركات تشكيل)
Strips away all Arabic short vowels (Tashkeel).
Heuristic for pruning the short vowels that a native speaker wouldn't write, as leaving them out wouldn't introduce ambiguity.
This is often preferable to strip, as Shaddas, or Dammas that indicate a passive verb are useful clues that one might want to keep.
Transliterating from a romanized representation of Arabic to actual Arabic script often gives incorrect results regarding short/long vowels.
This subroutine implements a heuristic for fixing such mix ups.
