Among the exclusive features of the Arabic Language:
Enrichment of vocabs that relatively express interconnected meanings:
Arabic language is distinguished with the Enrichment of vocabs that express a particular object; in other words, it’s linguistically defined as ‘‘. These vocabs were originally created by the various Arabian tribes. Evidently, after exploring the number of vocabs designated to describe the camel (i.e. the companion of the Arabian in desert) and whatever relates to it, the findings’ result revealed a number over 5644 words just for the camel.
Moreover, the number of letters that constitute an Arabic word is few whether this word is a verb, a noun or a preposition. The minimum of letters in a word is a single letter while the maximum is seven letters.
The linguistic outcome reaped from such Enrichment of vocabs in addition to the wide spectrum of figurative speech in Arabic language helped in empowering the person in expressing himself very efficiently in one aspect; and helped in entitling the Arabic language as the best expressive language from another aspect.
The lexicon of ‘Lisan al-’Arab’ is composed of 80 thousand entries. Some scholars maintain that Arabic language is composed of 400 thousand entries.
