Note "A Special Session ... on The development of Arabic as a written language was held at the 2009 Seminar [for Arabian Studies] on Friday, 24th July ... Because the papers invited for the Special Session dealt with different aspects of a single specific topic, the Steering Committee felt that it would be best to publish them together in a separate book. It has therefore created for this purpose an occassional series of Supplements to particular volumees of the Proceedings of the Seminar for Arabian Studies, which will be available, either as a set with the relevant volume of PCAS, or separately. The present book is thus a Supplement to the Proceedings of the Seminar for Arabian Studies volume 40, 2010"-Pref
