Arabic Morphology and Phonology
Based on the Marāḥ al-arwāh by Aḥmad b. ‘Aī b. Mas‘ūd
This volume presents a comprehensive study of Arabic morpho-phonology with
its basics and intricacies, by making available a wide range of material
from the 8th century A.D. until our days and exploring the main topics that
arise. It uses as its point of departure an unused source: the end of the
13th century Marāḥ al-arwāh by Aḥmad b. ‘alī Mas‘ūd, which is critically
edited and provided with an introduction, an English translation and an
extensive commentary. It offers an analysis of many grammatical theories,
paradigms, qur'anical citations, verses of poetry, dialectal variants and
Semitic words and concludes with various indices that make the enormous
body of information easily accessible.
