This volume contains over forty articles related to various fields of
modern Arabic dialectology. All the articles in this book are revised and
enhanced versions of papers read on the 7 th Conference of the Association
Internationale de Dialectologie Arabe (AIDA), held in Vienna in autumn
2006. The articles cover a wide range of subjects such as Bedouin
dialects, code-switching, differences between men’s and women’s speech, or
the question of prestige forms. The book also illustrates that the study
of Arabic dialects offers a great deal to other disciplines such as
ethnography, sociolinguistics, general linguistics, or Semitic studies.
