عَرَب (ʿarabf or m pl (collective, singulative عَرَبِيّ‎ m (ʿarabiyy), plural عُرُوب(ʿurūb) or أَعْرُب(ʾaʿrub) or عُرْبَان(ʿurbān), paucal عَرَب (ʿarab))

  1. Arabs, true Arabs

Usage notesEdit

According to Lane's Arabic Lexicon (entry عرب, book I, p. 2045), عَرَب(ʿarab) is of the feminine gender. However, since the word is a collective noun with human referents, it is possible for it to be treated as either a masculine plural or a feminine singular noun. For example, the Wikipedia entry has الْعَرَب الْبَاقِيَة الَّذِين (al-ʿarab al-bāqiya allaḏīn ..., the remaining Arabs who ...) with بَاقِيَة(bāqiya, remaining), a feminine singular, but الَّذِين(allaḏīn, who), a masculine plural. Semantically, such nouns often refer to races and ethnic groups. For similar collective nouns, see عَجَم(ʿajam, Non-Arabs), غَجَر(ḡajar, Gypsies), زَنْج(zanj, Negros), كُرْج(kurj, Georgians), فُرْس(furs, Persians), تُرْك(turk, Turks), كُرْد(kurd, Kurds), رُوم(rūm, Romans), and رُوس(rūs, Rus Vikings).
