About Me[edit]

I have a Ph.D. in Arabic Linguistics from Georgetown University. My research focus is the sociolinguistics of Tunisian Arabic, and I'm also interested in the syntax and description of Tunisian Arabic. I'm also a translator; I did the English translation of Shukri Mabkhout's novel The Italian, along with my co-translator, Miled Faiza. and we working on Amira Ghnayim's novel Calamity, which will be published in 2024. I am also interested in lexicography and was lead reviewing editor of the Oxford Arabic Dictionary.

My goal in editing Wikipedia is to improve the publicly-available knowledge on subjects that I care about.
