About this item

Scholars of the Arabic language, Islam, and the Middle East place Arabic in its historical and linguistic context, covering what Arabic is, Arabic in its epigraphic context, Classical Arabic in context, Qur'anic Arabic in context, and Middle and Modern Arabic in context. Among specific topics are how conservative and how innovative Arabic is, the Nabataeo-Arabic script and whether the language of the inscriptions written it are Aramaic or Arabic, terminative-adverbial and locative-adverbial endings in Semitic languages: a reassessment and its implications for Arabic, Middle Iranian borrowings in Qur'anic and pre-Islamic Arabic, and digging up archaic features: "neo-Arabic" and comparative Semitic in the quest for Proto Arabic.
