Abstract:

In recent scholarship, the connection between Middle Arabic and Mixed Arabic
is studied in a more systematic way. The idea of studying these two varieties in
one theoretical frame is quite new, and was initiated at the conferences of the
International Association for the Study of Middle and Mixed Arabic (AIMA). At
these conferences, the members of AIMA discuss the latest insights into the
definition, terminology, and research methods of Middle and Mixed Arabic.
Results of various discussions in this field are to be found in the present book,
which contains articles describing and analysing the linguistic features of
Muslim, Jewish and Christian Arabic texts (folklore, religious and linguistic
literature) as well as the matters of mixed language and diglossia.

Contributors include: Berend Jan Dikken, Lutz Edzard, Jacques Grand'Henry,
Bruno Halflants, Benjamin Hary, Rachel Hasson Kenat, Johannes den Heijer,
Amr Helmy Ibrahim, Paolo La Spisa, Jérôme Lentin, Gunvor Mejdell, Arie
Schippers, Yosef Tobi, Kees de Vreugd, Manfred Woidich, and Otto Zwartjes.
