Format: Paperback
Excellent.

A Scholarly work on arabic by an English author.

The first ever comprehensive dictionary published in English.

Essential for anyone who wants to really understand the Koran or any Classical Arabic of the 7th Century.

Clearly laid out , root based dictionary. Good explanatory extracts from the Koran which have helped me to understand the choce of wording of several of the modern translations and the various shades of meaning contained in the roots.

If you want to learn to read the Koran AND actually understand it from the original arabic, then get this book now! ( together with say Dr Surty's 'Quranic Arabic' or the MELS course 'Access to Quranic Arabic'with CD's, or similar books )

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It was my own error in assuming that this book might serve as a study guide. It is an elegant easy to read dictionary and glossary, but the organization is based on the Arabic and the original depiction of the Arabic word, followed by the English explanations, which appear to be superb. Bottom line: buy this only if you are reading the Koran in Arabic, and need a place to go from Arabic to English with fullsome explanations.

Do you read and write Arabic? Then maybe this book is for you. Not what I expected and no where did the description specify I needed to be a student of writing Arabic. At the time I originally ordered there was no look inside the book.
