Item description for Evidence Of Francophony In Mediaeval Levant: Decipherment and Interpretation by Cyril Aslanov...
This study is an annotated edition and commentary of an Arabic-Old French phrase book found on the last thirteen pages of a Coptic lexicographic treatise compiled in the thirteenth century and recopied in the sixteenth century (MS. BnF Copte 53). The main value of this work is two-fold: first, it is a specimen of the Crusader Old French, of which little has been preserved; and second, it provides evidence for the vernacular language of the period. In the analysis of the material, an attempt has been made to reconstruct from a diachronic-diatopic perspective the vernacular French spoken at Acre in the mid-thirteenth century. This volume will be of interest for Romance linguists and philologists, as well as historians of the Crusades and the Latin East. Arabists and historians of the late medieval Muslim Middle East of this time will also find much of use in this work. Cyril Aslanov is Associate Professor of French and Romance Linguistics at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. He has published a book on Andr Chouraquis translation of the Bible (Pour comprendre la Bible: la leon dAndr Chouraqui, Monaco: ditions du Rocher, 1999) and a monograph on Joseph Kaspis Sefer arot ha-Kesef (Le provenal des Juifs et lhbreu en Provence: le dictionnaire arot ha-Kesef de Joseph Caspi, Leuven: Peeters, 2002).
