Assimilation is a process by which sounds are influenced by their
neighbours, or replaced by other sounds in the Language. Sometimes you find
two neighbouring sounds reacting, as it were upon one another and are replaced
by a third sound different from both the original sounds.
In this article I described assimilation between the old Arab grammarian and
the modern. Each has his own theory. Included in this article are kinds of
assimilation, whether direct or indirect, progressive or regressive. The symptom
of Assimilation in old Arabic Dialects are then dealt with.
