LOUGHANIZ DIC­TIONARY

Some of the Le­banese words were de­rived from dif­fer­ent lan­guages such as Per­sian, Turk­ish, Greek, English, Syr­iac, Ital­ian and French. Though we use them daily, we are, most of the time, not aware of their ori­gins. Loughaniz is an ur­ban dic­tionary that shows the ori­gin of each word. It is de­signed in a way that helps Le­banese peo­ple un­der­stand bet­ter the spo­ken lan­guage. In this pro­ject, I have taken the chal­lenge to al­ter the for­mal struc­ture of a dic­tionary and use in­stead a unique, in­ter­ac­tive, and en­ter­tain­ing ap­proach. Each il­lus­trated word is ac­com­pa­nied by a short de­scrip­tion, in ad­di­tion to its ori­gin and its mean­ing in the Ara­bic dic­tionary.
