The Lexical Semantics of the Arabic Verb Hardback
This book explores Arabic derivational morphology, focusing on the relationship between verb meaning and linguistic forms from a lexical semantic perspective.
It explains why verbs with seemingly unrelated meanings share the same phonological shape, and analyses sets of words containing the same consonantal root to arrive at a common abstraction.
