Abstract and Keywords

This article is devoted to the philological analysis of selected features of Classical Arabic and Modern Standard Arabic as well as selected features of Middle Arabic. The sections on the writing system and phonology as well as morphology are held rather brief, as the aspect of “cultural embeddedness” seems to be less relevant in these realms of grammar. First and foremost, it reflects a nonexhaustive overview of some cases or even causes célèbres in Arabic syntax and semantics. The article concludes with a short philological analysis of a Middle Arabic (here: Judeo-Arabic) text.

Keywords: philological analysis, Classical Arabic, Modern Standard Arabic, Middle Arabic, syntax, semantics
