Description :

This is an insightful resource on an important subject of Arabic Grammar; the characteristics of the Arabic etymological [sarf] chapters.

The book reveals the intricate patterns inherent in lexical meanings of Arabic etymological chapters by identifying the characteristics of each chapter with coherent examples. It is the first authentic work in English that delves into this area of Arabic Etymology and is based on the works of reliable grammarians and lexicographers.

Extract from the Introduction :

''Diya al-Khawass contains an Arabic text (matn) which lists the characterists of all the chapters with examples from authentic Arabic lexicons as well as other reliable works of Arabic Language. The matn is followed by an English commentary that thoroughly explains the text.

This work will be of benefit to all those students of the classical Qur'anic Arabic language who seek to gain further insight and understanding of the beauteous intricacies of this sublime language.''

Review :
'' I have read the Arabic text and the English commentary of this book. Although this is the author's first written work; however, reading through its lucid text supported by exceptional research as well as simple and straightforward examples, it feels as though an experienced author and teacher has composed this important linguistic work. This is a very comprehensive and concise book covering the topic of the characteristics of the etymological chapters. '' ---Shaykh M.I.H. Pirzada.
