Arabic-English Dictionary, Linguistics, Nigel Groom

369 pp; glossary, biblio, Arabic index. Copy clean in very good condition. 
Most Arabic placenames are descriptive of the place the belong to, either in whole or in part. An understanding of their meanings can therefore provide much useful information about the topography of the places of areas where they occur. The primary purpose of this Dictionary is to list and give the meanings of Arabic words. Whether in current usage or not, which describe place and topographical features and which may be found in placenames. Such list will, it is hoped, provide a valuable aid for scholars and specialists-cartographers, geographers, surveyors, agriculturists, botanists, archaeologists, engineers, hydrographers-to name but a few, who need information about topography and placenames in Arabicspeaking areas.
