Academy of the Arabic Language in Cairo
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Academy of the Arabic Language in Cairo (Arabic: مجمع اللغة العربية بالقاهرة‎) was a language academy for Arabic created in Cairo, Egypt in 1932 by Fuad I of Egypt​.​[1]​[2] It publishes Al-Mu'jam al-Kabir [ar] (The Great Dictionary​) and Al-Mu'jam al-Wasīt [ar] (The Intermediary Dictionary​), two of the most important dictionaries of the Arabic language.​[3]
One of the early tasks of the Academy of the Arabic Language in Cairo was to publish a historical dictionary of Arabic, tracing the changes of meanings and uses of Arabic words over time, though this was not achieved.​[1]
Muhammad Tawfiq Rafaat [ar], Ahmed Lutfi el-Sayed​, and Taha Hussein served as presidents.​[3]
Wafaa' Kamil [ar] was the first woman to become a member of the Academy of the Arabic Language in Cairo.​[4]​[5]
