3The Concept of Historical Dictionary
The historical dictionary of the Arabic language is a dictionary that records Arabic vocabulary since its usage in the earliest script to date.

4Importance of the Historical Dictionary of the Arabic Language
Building a historical dictionary of the Arabic Language means building the linguistic memory of our nation. As the language mirrors the thought, the construction of the linguistic memory is also a construction of the intellectual memory. Therefore, if we could historically chronicle this memory,  we are actually facilitating the observation of the linguistic and intellectual developments that this nation went through over twenty centuries of its history.
