Book Information

   

Title: A Dictionary of Andalusi Arabic
URL: http://www.brill.nl/default.aspx?partid=10&pid=450
Series Title: Handbook of Oriental Studies. Section 1: The Near and Middle East
Description:

A detailed scientific description of the Andalusi Arabic dialect bundle did
not exist until recent times, although the correct understanding of some of
its texts bears heavily on many momentous conclusions drawn by contemporary
scholars about the extent and depth of cultural interaction between the
Arabs and the West.

After many years of work on the grammar of this variety of Neo-Arabic, and
having produced accurate editions of its materials, the author now
undertakes the task of establishing its lexicon, both synchronically and
diachronically, by listing words and idioms and trying to provide the etyma
of most items.

This volume will be useful to students of Arabic dialectology and also to
those concerned with any kind of literature produced in Al-Andalus, as well
as to Romance scholars who may find the solution to many an etymological
riddle here.
