Using Arabic Synonyms by Dilworth Parkinson
This new guide to Arabic synonyms is the first to be produced specifically for English speaking students of Arabic. Its aim is to enable them to develop, broaden, and enhance their awareness of the complexity and richness of Arabic vocabulary by presenting, in an easily accessible form, information not readily available in traditional dictionaries. It contains a wide variety of material, including informal modes of expression as well as the formal, and practical vocabulary as well as literary language. The tabular layout is designed for maximum ease of reference, with English equivalents and sample Arabic contexts for each Arabic item. There are two indexes enabling the user quickly to locate any given Arabic or English word.
