W. Wright The ancient Semitic languages Arabic and Aramaic are as closely connected with each other as the Roman languages. In some points the north Semitic tongues, particularly the Hebrew, may bear the greatest resemblance to this parent speech; but, on the whole, the south Semitic dialects, Arabic have, preserved a higher degree of likeness to the original Semitic language.
Dr. Wright’s translation of Caspari’s Arabic Grammar from the German, edited with numerous additions and corrections, first appeared in 1859. Since that time, it has been thoroughly revised and enlarged, and has become the standard authority.
The present re-issue of Wright’s Arabic Grammar incorporates only a few changes, mostly corrections of misprints, in the body of the work.
