العِلْم شيء لا يعطيك بعضَه حتّى تعطيه كلّك فإنْ أعطيتَه كلّك فأنت من إعطائه لك البعضَ على خطرٍ
Knowledge is something that does not grant you a portion of itself unless you give yourself completely to it. But even if you give yourself completely to it you can never be sure that it grants you that portion. (al-Naẓẓām, c. 775-845)

Faglige interesser

Moderne arabisk og tyrkisk litteratur, komparativ litteratur, etymologi og arabisk begrepshistorie (Conceptual History).

  • Les mer om Skjønnlitteraturens "merverdi" og filologiens uunnværlige bidrag til Midtøsten-studiene
  • Recent etymological studies: Of Navels, Concubines and Other Secrets – The Arabic root S-R-R

    Is the ‘concubine’ (Arabic surriyya), originally, the *‘one who lets a man see her navel’ (surra)? Is the ‘navel’ also the etymon of the word for ‘secret’ (sirr) in general? How can the verbal root √S-R-R convey the notion of ‘hiding, concealing’ and, at the same time, ‘revealing’? And is it the navels, or secrets, that make us experience ‘joy, happiness, tranquility of the mind’ (surūr)? How would the ‘facial expressions’ (ʾasārīr al-wajh) fit into the overall picture? Not to forget the common word for ‘bed’, sarīr, and the ‘last night of the lunar month’ (sarār), or the camel with a galled breast (ʾasarr)?
    Curious to learn more about the secrets of the Arabic lexicon?  ̶  Check out EtymArab, the nuclear version of an etymological dictionary of the Arabic language. For the ‘navel’ and its derivatives, click yourself through the entries on the root SRː (SRR) (back-forward arrows on top of the pages).
