The papers in this collection address a wide range of data-related and methodological issues in Arabic and Semitic linguistics. The contributions fall under three categories: (I) “Modern perspectives on Comparative Semitic and Afroasiatic” (papers by Olga Kapeliuk, Rainer Voigt and Andrzej Zaborski); (II) “Modern perspectives on native Arabic grammatical theory” (papers by Michael Carter, Rafi Talmon and Mohammed Nekroumi); and (III) “Modern linguistic and literary theory applied to Arabic” (papers by Pierre Larcher, Utz Maas, Jeffrey Heath, Lutz Edzard and Joseph Bell).
In an attempt to foster international scholarly understanding, this volume brings together a variety of different scientific “schools” or “traditions” in the realms of Arabic and Semitic linguistics, from Israel, from Maghreb, from USA, from France, from Norway and from Germany.
