translating the numerous extracts from Arabic authors found in Mr. Richardson's Grammar, to facilitate the study of the Oriental languages, which are so interesting in themselves, especially the Arabic, from the great stores of literature that are contain ed in them, whilst with their close connection with the Hebrew, they must always contribute highly to the proper interpretation of the Original Scriptures. By giving it, also, full English explanations of every Arabic word that occurs in the Grammar, tracing it at the same time, if derivative, to the Hebrew, Chaldee, or Syriac, in which the Root of it is to be found, the trouble of having recourse to large dictionaries is rendered unnecessary, till the Student has made some progress in the elements of the language; and an interesting field of philological research is likewise opened up to his view, in the very intimate relation which subsists between the Arabic and the Persic, and the other Oriental dialects, of which the Hebrew forms the original and fundamental language. This intimate relation will be clearly seen in this Vocabulary, which contains nearly 1600 Arabic words, and of these scarcely less than 1200 are plainly traced to their originals in the Hebrew, Chaldee, and Syriac languages. The engraved Table of Alphabets, intended to form the frontispiece of the Work, will also exhibit distinctly, at one view, the affinity between the Hebrew, Samaritan, Ethiopic, Syriac, Arabic, and Persic Alphabets, with the value of the letters employed in them to represent numbers.-The Work will be elegantly printed on fine paper in Quarto, to bind up with Mr. Richardson's Grammar, to which it is intended to form a sequel. Price 10s. 6d.
