At last, a modern Arabic dictionary brought out by Oxford.
This completely replaces the out-of-date N.S. Doniach 1972 edition.
Before this new one came out, learners have had to rely on either Al Mawrid or Hans Wehr.
Al Mawrid is aimed more at Arab readers and as a result, simple grammatical information is not shown with the base noun or verb.
Hans Wehr has the root-order which is more useful for learners of Arabic but has not been updated in 25 years.
The Oxford has everything a new learner could want, as well as being crammed with many extra features. The Arabic-English section is also organized by root-order and listed alphabetically, and the dictionary itself has been designed with both Arabic and English native speakers in mind.
