 Landmarks in Linguistic Thought III: The Arabic Linguistic Tradition
is devoted to themain linguistic tradition of the Middle East, namely that of Arabic linguistics.The reader is introduced to the major issues and themes that have determined thedevelopment of the Arabic linguistic tradition. Each chapter contains a short extract froma translated “landmark” text followed by a commentary which places the text in its socialand intellectual context. The chosen texts frequently offer scope for comparison with theWestern tradition. The book highlights the characteristics of a tradition outside theWestern mainstream with an independent approach to the phenomenon of language andthus stimulates new ideas about the history of linguistics.This book presumes no prior knowledge of Arabo-Islamic culture and Arabiclanguage, and is invaluable to anyone with an interest in the History of Linguistics.
