Launch of Dicionário de Arabismos da Língua Portuguesa (Dictionary of Portuguese Words of Arabic Origin) at the Foz Palace

October 9, 2013

The Dicionário de Arabismos da Língua Portuguesa dictionary compiled by the writer, legal consultant, historian and Arab scholar Adalberto Alves, was publicly launched on 7 October, in the Room of Mirrors of the Foz Palace, in Lisbon.

The event was attended by Badr Hassanien, professor of the Faculty of Arts of the University of Lisbon and Arabic to Portuguese translator, who presented the work, and by the Chairman of the Board of Directors of INCM, António Osório.

Adalberto Alves began studying the Arab civilization at the start of the 1980’s. His interest in the field led to him learning the Arabic language and conducting extensive research work in this area, which was recognised by UNESCO in 2008 through the award of the International Sharjah Prize.

The Dicionário de Arabismos da Língua Portuguesa, drawn up from the examination of various Arab works and sources, includes place names, anthroponymy, current vocabulary and semantic loans, explaining the Arabic origin of a range of Portuguese words.
