    books for advanced arabic in english

    i am looking for some books on advanced arabic. nahw and sarf. any suggestions? dont want to do the basic or even intermediate arabic as i think i have already studied those well alhamdulillah and have a good command over it.
    also, where does one find books that talk about the lexicology of arabic words? like what the root letters mean and how the meaning is derived in the sentence. sort of like the history of arabic words.

    Download the Shamela library. It's free and has over 160 books about Nahw and Sarf ranging from the earliest days of the sciences to today.

    As far as "lexicology", then I'm sure you mean "etymology" as that refers to the history of words and their original and derived meanings. Any comprehensive Arabic-Arabic dictionary will give that information such as Taj al-Aruus and Lisan al-Arab. Both of those books are also found in the Shamela library and are fully searchable using multiple keywords.

    The problem that most students of Arabic have is not with grammatical theory or morphology, but rather with applied theory and vocabulary. Some people can rattle off the "scales" and conjugate verbs from memory but they can't accurately interpret a paragraph from Ibn Taymiyyah or at-Tabari to save their lives.

    I guess it all depends on what you want to do with the Arabic language...
