Among the books I loaned from the library is: "Pidgins, Creoles and Lingua Francas - A sociolinguistic study" by Max K. Adler.
It is an inconspicuous-looking book; thin, colourless and outdated (1977)
but it has verses from the Old Testament, the New Testament, and the Quran in its preface.
All the verses had something to do with linguistics.
The verses from Quran are taken from Surah Ar-Rahman, Verse 1-4:
The verses in Arabic are very familiar to me but I never think deeply about their meaning and how related they are to the field I'm currently studying.
I always bemoan how much I hate linguistics but these four verses may have just changed my mind.
