List All Loanwords

If you select List Loanwords from the Browse menu (where it can be found under Word Lists), Qur’an Gateway will display a list of all the loanwords that occur in the qur’anic text, as classified by one of the standard reference guides (Arthur Jeffery’s The Foreign Vocabulary of the Qur'an).

1 Chart Icon. Click the icon to see a chart showing how frequently loanwords are used in each of the Qur’an’s 114 suras.
2 Lemma. For each loanword in the list, Qur’an Gateway shows you both the Arabic and transliterated version of its lemma. (If you’d like to sort the table by lemma, just use the arrows at the top of the columns — indeed, you can sort the table by any column you like this way).
3 Root. For those words with an Arabic root as well as a lemma (most of them), the table lists that root.
4 Gloss. A brief English translation of the word.
5 Occurrences. Shows how often each word occurs in the Qur’an.
6 Action Icons. Click the icon to see the definition/discussion of this word in The Foreign Vocabulary of the Qur’an. Click the icon to exhaustively list all the occurrences in the Qur’an of this lemma. Or click  icon to display a chart of this proper noun’s occurrences in the Qur’an (or simply point at the icon and wait a few seconds to see a mini-chart).

TIP


Simply click on any item in a row in the table (either the Arabic, transliteration, gloss or occurrence count) and Qur’an Gateway will open up the verse browser and show you every verse where that word appears.
