Book Information


Title: Perspectives on Arabic Linguistics
Subtitle: Papers from the annual symposia on Arabic Linguistics. Volume XXII-XXIII: College Park, Maryland, 2008 and Milwaukee, Wisconsin, 2009
Edited By: Ellen I. Broselow
Hamid Ouali
Series Title: Current Issues in Linguistic Theory 317

The present volume presents cutting-edge research on Arabic linguistics. It
features a set of papers which continue a long tradition of seeking new
explanations for familiar or previously undiscovered structural patterns. While
the papers illustrate a range of approaches, from formalist to functionalist, each
paper combines rigorous analysis of a set of Arabic data within the context of
explicit models of some aspect of human language. The volume consists of
three sections, the first section devoted to phonetics and phonology, the second
to syntax, and the third to language acquisition and language contact.
