Abstract:

This is the first monograph-length volume entirely devoted to the theoretical and
empirical issues raised by the definition of 'word' and related concepts in Arabic,
both at the historical and synchronic level. Some of the best-known scholars in
the field of Arabic linguistics debate such issues as the technical definition of
words and morphemes in the Arabic grammatical and rhetorical traditions, the
theoretical status of the root and its interactions with morphology, the analysis
of word in the computer treatment of Arabic texts, some relevant phenomena in
the contact of Arabic with other languages. The result is a fresh portrait of some
of the most interesting research currently under way in Arabic linguistics from
different theoretical and methodological viewpoints.

                            Historical Linguistics
