Details:   Hans Wehr Arabic-English Dictionary of Modern Written Arabic,
[A5+] Hardback - 1307 pages,
Compiled by Hans Wehr,
Edited by J Milton Cowan.




Description :


 
The work is compiled on descriptive principles: only words and expressions that are attested in context are included. "It was chiefly based on combing modern works of Arabic literature for lexical items, rather than culling them from medieval Arabic dictionaries, like what Lane had done in the nineteenth century".

 
The dictionary arranges its entries according to the traditional Arabic root order. Foreign words are listed in straight alphabetical order by the letters of the word.

 
"Of all the dictionaries of modern written Arabic, the work [in question] ... is the best."
