Classical Arabic Dictionary consists of approximately one hundred million words of Arabic collected from texts dating between 431 and 1104 CE, principally books and essays, along with word occurrences, source documents and related metadata.


The dictionary is presented in three formats: plain text in UTF-8 encoding, plain text in CP1256 encoding, and as an SQL database file. Source documents are presented in UTF-8 and CP1256 encodings.

Source text metadata includes authors' birth and death places, year of death, and place of residence.
