The Encyclopedia of Arabic Language and Linguistics is a major multi-volume reference work. It is a unique collaboration of hundreds of scholars from around the world and covers all relevant aspects of the study of Arabic, dealing with all levels of the language (pre-Classical Arabic, Classical Arabic, Modern Standard Arabic, Arabic vernaculars, mixed varieties of Arabic).
"I find the EALL a valuable and authoritative reference tool that reaches out to a wide range of readership. Its comprehensive scope, lucid writing style and manageable design and layout make the EALL useful, initially and foremost, to linguists but also to scholars from various fields that have connections to Arabic language and linguistics, as well as to advanced students." Nadia Hamrouni, Second Language Acquisition and Teaching, University of Arizona
