Title: Perspectives on Arabic Linguistics VIII - Papers From the Eighth Annual Symposium on Arabic Linguistics.
Edited By: Mushira Eid
Series Title: Current Issues in Linguistic Theory
Description:

This volume contains a selection of papers presented at the Eighth Annual Symposium on Arabic Linguistics (March 4-5, 1994, Amherst, Massachusetts). The majority of papers deal with a syntactic topic: pronoun doubling, aspects of negation, and parameter-resetting in second language acquisition. This last article is placed in the section on language variation, together with a contribution on diglossia and linguistic variation. Phonology is the last section of this volume, including two articles: one on voice assimilation and one on the distribution of homorganic consonants in triconsonantal roots.
