This volume presents a collection of seven peer-reviewed articles on Arabic phonetics, phonology, syntax, semantics, and applied linguistics. The authors address stress assignment, the phenomenon of 'imāla, the place of articulation of the dorsal fricative, the structure of correlatives, the CP layer, sluicing and sprouting, and clinical linguistics. They do so by using data from Standard Arabic, and from Egyptian, Jordanian, Palestinian, and Saudi Arabian varieties of Arabic. The book will be of interest to linguists working in descriptive and theoretical areas of Arabic linguistics.
