    Hello everybody,

    I am pleased to introduce the Arabic Resources thread. This thread will contain a compilation of helpful resources covering various topics about the Arabic language and gathered by our foreros. A special thank you goes to Whodunit :thumbsup: for compiling our first set of 40 links.

    In the interest of easy and rapid location of links, this thread will be composed of several posts, each containing a set of links relevant to a particular topic. In order to facilitate reference to links in threads and/or PMs, individual links will be numbered according to post number and order of appearance.

    To add a link to the thread, please contact cherine or clevermizo via PM.

    I hope we all benefit from this asset and contribute to its development.

    Best regards,
