Series Title: Encyclopedia of Arabic Language and Linguistics
Description:

This volume concludes the publication of the Encyclopedia of Arabic
Language and Linguistics
in print. It represents a unique collaboration
of over hundreds of scholars from around the world, covering all relevant
aspects of the study of Arabic and dealing with all levels of the language
(pre-Classical Arabic, Classical Arabic, Modern Standard Arabic, Arabic
vernaculars, mixed varieties of Arabic).

No other reference work offers this scale of contributions or depth and
breadth of coverage. The Encyclopedia of Arabic Language and
Linguistics
is, therefore, a standard reference work for students and
researchers in the field of linguistics, Islamic studies, Arabic literature
and other related fields.
