The rhetorical traditions of a nation are an important part of the
linguistic and thought processes which characterize the intellectual
make-up of its people. This has perhaps never been more evident than in the
case of the Arabic language and those who speak it. Such an
interrelationship between language and thinking has been at the heart of
serious misunderstandings of the perceptions and attitudes of the Arabs on
the part of those who interact with them via culture, trade and more
recently politics.

The aim of Arabic Rhetoric: Norms & Deviations is thus to provide a core
text on Arabic Rhetoric (balagha) for semi-specialist and generalist
readers with professional interest in the Arabic language and culture. In
an accessible manner, the reader is presented with a comprehensive, albeit
brief, account of the salient features of Arab rhetorical thinking. Such
accounts aim to familiarize the reader with the major themes, what these
mean to the modern user of Arabic in fields such as translation and how
they compare and contrast with recent trends in modern text linguistics.
The focus of the book is not so much on the chronology and historical
ramifications as on the conceptual map which highlights milestones in the
development of Arabic rhetorical thought.

Linguistic Field(s): Discourse Analysis
