<img src="images/gallery.gif"> E. W. Lane's Arabic-English Lexicon Screenshots"It is a work of such fundamental importance and of such matchless excellence that praise for it is quite superfluous. Every Arabist since Lane has had good cause to bless him for his superhuman labours ... It is certainly true to say that every work produces in this century relating in any way to Arabic studies has drawn heavily on the Lexicon."

Prof. A. J. Arberry


Reviews of the Lane's Lexicon CD-ROM

"The Lane lexicon on CD-ROM is a most welcome addition to our lexicographical inventory... and the producers have our gratitude for their highly commendable work. The electronic Lane contains the entire work as printed."

"I must say that as priced at $150...It is considerably less expensive than the print version, at about $350 for the two volume reduction."

"Lane's lexicon on CD is an invaluable tool for the Arabist and is highly recommended for purchase by individuals and libraries."
