The classification of Arabic dialects is a work in process - in particular, there is a significant lack of language-based approaches and the concept of inheritance is often neglected. Recent scholarship has attempted to address these issues. Arabic Dialectology, a compilation of essays from scholars of different origins and diverse linguistic backgrounds (Arabic, Berber, English, French, Hebrew, Spanish), aims to shed a light on recent trends in Arabic dialectology. A key contribution to the understanding of Arabic linguistics, Arabic Dialectology is a must-have.
