This volume is intended as the first in a series of studies on traditional Arab linguistic theories concentrating on S?bawayhi and his grammatical legacy. Here, the reader is introduced to the major issues and themes that have determined the development of Arabic grammar and presents Sibawayhi in the context of his intellectual and social environment. The papers make significant contributions to and offer in-depth introductions into major aspects of the foundations of Arab Linguistics, early Syriac and medieval Hebrew linguistic traditions. This is a unique reference on the three main Semitic linguistic traditions, accompanied by a detailed analysis of some grammatical and pragmatic aspects of Kitab Siawayhi in the light of modern theories and scholarship.Table of ContentsAcknowledgementsForewordList of contributorsPart I Sibawayhi in the Kitab1.
