Wortabet’s dictionary has a staying power not often found among historical dictionaries. In various forms it is still in wide use today. Going back to the historic original form, Gorgias Press is now offering this volume as part of its Historical Dictionary series.

Wortabet’s Arabic-English Dictionary was the result of a keen desire felt in the nineteenth century for a clear and accurate lexicon of Arabic into English. With the assistance of his father John Wortabet and Prof. Harvey Porter, Wortabet compiled a dictionary that was hailed as embodying the latest scholarship of its day. Its early reviewers remarked on its ease of use and convenient arrangement of material. Still in use as a standard tool for students of Arabic, this historical dictionary has stood the test of time and remains a recognized name in the study of Arabic.

William Thomson Wortabet was a Professor of English at the Egyptian Government School of Medicine and Pharmacy at Cairo. His father was a medical missionary in Beirut.
