An introductory classical text with translation and notes
This volume provides an analysis of a famous medieval Arabic grammatical text, al-Ājurrūmiya (c. 1300), as commented on by aš-Šhirbīnī (d. 1570). This edition includes the original text and a translation into English, as well as extensive comments and annotations, with the aim of making accessible both to Arabists and non-Arabists the main elements of indigenous Arabic linguistics, and thereby at least partially filling a large blank in the history of linguistics.

The present work is massively erudite, sound in scholarship, and (as has been said) almost over-rich in example and reference. It is also, surprisingly often, human, even personal and witty. Close, or for that matter casual, study of any part of it is not only rewarding but positively enjoyable.”
