Item description for Dialect, Culture, and Society in Eastern Arabia: Glossary (Handbook of Oriental Studies/Handbuch Der Orientalistik) by Clive Holes...

A three volume study of the Arabic dialects spoken in Bahrain by its older generation, and of the socio-cultural factors which produced them. The material on which the study is based consists of hundreds of hours of transcribed conversations gathered in the mid-1970s. All major social variables are covered in the speaker sample. Volume I lists all the words, with extensive contextual exemplification, which occur in the complete set of texts of which Volume II presents an annotated and translated selection, together with an introduction on the origins of the eastern Arabian vocabulary, and cross references to previous works on the dialects of the area and to the classical lexica. Volume III is a detailed study of the phonology, morphology and syntax of the dialects.
