An excellent dictionary based on word roots and their measures. An absolute must for anyone serious about studying Modern Standard Arabic. I have found this dictionary to be the easiest and quickest one to use.

Yes, I am currently reading the dictionary!! Actually its fascinating to read -- I like etymology in any language, and Arabic is perfectly organized for etymology. If you study Arabic, you must buy this dictionary. Don't bother with the phonetic ones -- you'll master the verb roots eventually...

Simply put, this is the best general dictionary out there. Absolutely essential if you are going to work with the Arabic language.

The best Arabic dictionary--and make sure you get this edition, as the Snowball one is somewhat expurgated!
