Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of terms and concepts relevant to the examination of the verbal systems of two Semitic languages spoken in Oman and the expression of tense and aspect in Šarqiyya Arabic and Mehri through the use of affixes and particles. The function of the verbal system has been a major theme in Arabic linguistics as well as in the broader context of Semitic linguistics. The verbal systems of Arabic varieties have been characterised alternatively as a marking aspect, tense, or a combination of both tense and aspect.

Keywords: Šarqiyya Arabic; Mehri; semitic linguistics; verbal systems
