    €25.59

    Like a procession of Magi bringing to Europe the riches of the East, a treasure trove of Arabic words has come to enrich the verbal means by which we name the world. From Heaven to Earth, from sciences to beliefs, from natural substances to fabrics and clothes, from war to peace, many domains of our experience can hide or reveal their oriental origin, be it learned, poetic or familiar. Arabic words in French are often surprising, unexpected, like the swell of the ocean, the number of calculations, the elixir and the amber. and, in commercial life, the store or the customs. Comfort is not absent. Not only the couch and sofa are "Arab", but also the mattress. That the words "babouche" and "fez" are oriental, we are not surprised. But the "shawl", the "vest", the "skirt? And the "dome", the "mask" and the "masquerade"?
