    "To sum up, The Foundations of Arabic Linguistics is a significant contribution to our increasing knowledge of this important branch in the history of linguistic thinking. The book makes it plain how rich and profound is the Arabic grammatical tradition."

      The Arabic Language. By KEES VERSTEEGH. New York: COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY PRESS; Edinburgh: EDINBURGH UNIVERSITY PRESS, Pp. vii + According to the author, the aim of this book is to present a sketch of the history of Arabic (p. vii). This is a noble goal indeed, since there are few books on this topic in any language. Linguistics is the science of language, including the sounds, words, and grammar rules. Words in languages are finite, but sentences are not. It is this creative aspect of human language that sets it apart from animal languages, which are essentially responses to stimuli.

    Welcome to the Arabic Linguistics and Phonetics Site, which is entirely devoted to the study of Arabic, with an unashamed bias towards linguistics and phonetics. Although it is primarily aimed at researchers, academics, translators, etc. the resources contain something for everyone. I've been searching for quite a long time for a Hebrew-Arabic grammar book to study both languages in more depth at the same time while being able to compare similar roots and the root system for instance. I've only been able to find old books treating general Semitic languages or enormous volumes of comparative grammars.
