Chapter Summary

Any serious and mod. survey of Arabic loanwords in the Romance languages of the Iberian Peninsula requires a scientific method to check the accuracy of the hypotheses put forward about them since as far back as the Middle Ages. The chapter aims to provide, with additions and corrections, a much needed grammar of the Arabic loanwords in Ibero-Romance, i.e., the catalogue of general and particular rules which generate them and govern their transfer from the source language to the target languages in three grammar levels. The grammar of the Arabic loanwords of Romance, as a comprehensive treatment of signifier and signified would not be completed without some socio-linguistic comments.
