 Editorial Statement

We are very pleased to present the seventh and eighth issue of
Linguistic Research / ?abhaat lisaaniyya. The journal is intended to
be an active forum for discussion, interaction, and integration of
theoritical and applied research on Arabic and other languages within
a comparative framework. Work on Semitic and African languages will be
particularly encouraged.

The journal will include contributions in the following topics and
- theoretically oriented work in linguistic sciences, including syntax,
morphology, phonology, lexicology, semantics, pragmatics, language
acquisition, cognitive science, corpus linguistics, etc.
- applied research especially in the domains of computational
linguistics, terminology, translation, didactics, language planning,
communication, and language variation
- interdisciplinary research
- reviews of important contributions in those fields
- replies or critiques
- brief descriptions of computational or didactic tools, especially
those applied to Arabic.

Contributions can be written in Arabic, English, or French. Manuscripts
are subjected to a thorough review, which would hopefully contribute to
improving their content and presentation.

Contributors are asked to submit their manuscripts in three copies.
Articles should not exceed 25 to 30 pages (double spaced). Very long
articles will be included only exceptionally. Final versions of accepted
texts should be preferrably edited on Word 6.0 (or later versions) and
made available on floppy disks (using PC or Mac). Guidelines for authors
are available from the editors. Manuscripts are not returnable.

We hope to create an active forum of research on Arabic and languages in
the area, situated with respect to languages in other areas of the
world. We also hope to bridge the gap between theoretical and applied
