Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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 nic studies, adab, folk literature, sufism, and poetry.

Book News Annotation:

The twenty papers presented here by Orfali (Arabic and Islamic studies, American U. of Beirut, Lebanon) are dedicated in honor of Ramzi Baalbaki, scholar of Arabic at the American U. of Beirut. As such, they focus on those areas that formed the core of his scholarly work: the study of early terminology and concepts to demonstrate that Arabic grammatical thought is organic and not borrowed, the central place of the grammatical tradition within the Arabic and Islamic scholarly tradition, and the analytical methods of the early Arabic grammarians and their thought on the balance between structure and meaning. .
