Semantic Borrowings and Grammatical Change in Written Arabic in Israel under the Influence of Hebrew: The function of DPs and the peculiar ماحش

  • Torkel Lindquist

Abstract

Influence from Modern Hebrew (MH) on written Modern Standard Arabic (MSA) as found in the Israeli-Arab Press in Israel can appear as 1) semantic borrowings; 2) orthographical borrowings; and/or 3) grammatical change in syntax or morphology. The word māHiš appears to be a borrowing into MSA with more than one of these aspects.
