Dictionary of Arabic and Allied Loanwords: Spanish, Portuguese, Catalan, Galician and Kindred Dialects
A survey of Arabic and allied loanwords in Western languages is a first-rate tool to asses the impact of Islamic factors in the emergence and background of Western civilization. The Romance languages of the Iberian Peninsula are in an ideal position for this kind of research, considering the length and strength of Muslim states on its soil.
