This concise and well-organized grammar of classical Arabic, here translated from its original German into English for the first time, provides students of Arabic with a highly useful reference tool. While brief enough to be used with efficiency, the book is also rich in content and thorough in its coverage. Beginning- or advanced-level students working on classical texts and styles will find this grammar quick to use, reliable, and up-to-date.

More than just a translation into English, this edition of Wolfdietrich Fischer’s Grammar of Classical Arabic includes many revisions and additions provided by the author. In particular, the chapter on syntax offers numerous new text examples and other improvements. The bibliography has been updated to include significant recent contributions to the field of classical Arabic grammar and linguistics. Translated by Jonathan Rodgers with attention to both accuracy and readability, this book is an accessible reference tool that every student of classical Arabic will want to have on hand.

Jonathan Rodgers is head of the Near East Division of the University of Michigan Library.

“A solid reference work for both introductory and advanced students of Arabic. Written in a systematic and clear way, this book makes complex Arabic grammar rules accessible to the Western student.”—Bassam Frangieh, Yale University
