Title: In the Shadow of Arabic: The Centrality of Language to Arabic Culture
Subtitle: Studies Presented to Ramzi Baalbaki on the Occasion of His Sixtieth Birthday
Edited By: Bilal Orfali
URL: http://www.brill.nl/shadow-arabic-centrality-language-arabic-culture
Series Title: Studies in Semitic Languages and Linguistics
Description:

The collection of articles in this volume is dedicated to Ramzi Baalbaki of the
American University of Beirut on the occasion of his 60th birthday. The volume reflects the central themes of Ramzi Baalbaki’s scholarly work:
history of Arabic grammar, Arabic lexicography, Arabic linguistics,
comparative Semitics, Arabic epigraphy, and textual editing of classical
texts. It provides intellectual, literary, and social historians, as well as
Arabists, philologists, and linguists with an interesting glimpse into the early medieval and modern traditions related to the Arabic language, its grammar, historical development, and demonstrates its centrality to other fields of study such as Qur’ānic studies, adab, folk literature, sufism, and poetry.

Contributors include: Nadia Anghelescu, Georgine Ayoub, Aziz Azmeh,
