The Arabic Linguistics Society sponsors the publication of papers selected from its annual symposia on Arabic Linguistics and published by John Benjamins (Amsterdam & Philadelphia). The papers appear in a series of volumes entitled Perspectives on Arabic Linguistics (PAL) and are subject to a rigorous editorial and peer-review process prior to final acceptance for publication. Their goal is to disseminate high quality research on Arabic framed within current linguistic theories and models of analysis. The first volume appeared in 1990 as part of John Benjamins’ series Current Issues in Linguistic Theory. As of 2013, the volumes will appear under John Benjamins’ new series Studies in Arabic Linguistics.
