Arabic Contributions to the English Vocabulary

Author : James Peters , Habeeb Salloum

Arabic Contributions to the English Vocabulary is a definitive lexicon detailing the impact of Arabic on the English Vocabulary and listing English Words of Arabic origin which include about 3,000 entries with another almost 4,800 derivatives for a total of 7,800 English words all of Arabic origin. English today has thousands of words in all fields of human endeavour which are of Arabic origin: in architecture, agriculture, art, astronomy, commerce, geography, industry, literature, mathematics, mechanics, medicine, music and physics. A study of the Skeats Etymological Dictionary indicates that Arabic is the seventh on the list of languages that have contributed to the enrichment of the English vocabulary. Arabic Contributions to the English Vocabulary will help to break the almost perfect silence that surrounds the Arabic contribution in times past to the science, technology and culture of the West.
