The Arabic Linguistic Tradition in a Comparative Perspective

Auther : Kees Versteegh

In this article the author deals with a number of issues in the history of the Arabic linguistic tradition, as a preliminary to a comparative study of linguistic traditions. The issues selected are the following: diachrony/synchrony, presecriptive/descriptive, variation of speech, attitude towards other languages, the concept of linguistic rule. He shows that the arab grammarians views on these isues are connected with their linguistic situation and the general social/religious context. Suggestions are made for a comparison between the Arabic linguistic tradition and other traditions, which operated, in partly similar contexts.
