Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Approaches to Arabic Linguistics: Presented to Kees Versteegh on the Occasion of his Sixtieth Birthday contains the table of contents, preface, and bibliography Kees Versteegh. The study of Arabic has been Arabic-speaking scholars' domain for many centuries. Kees Versteegh has unearthed their understanding of the language and 'translated' it for Western scholarship. Western scholars' linguistic study of Arabic, according to current standards, started only at the beginning of the 19th century. So while the western linguistic approach is much younger than that of those native scholars, Western Arabic linguistics are on par with even native intellectual efforts, and Kees Versteegh has contributed to this state of affairs.

Keywords: Arabic linguistics; Kees Versteegh
