The ʿUbāb is a dictionary of classical Arabic written by al-Ṣaghānī, author of al-Shawārid, also on our site. The ʿUbāb is unique in that the author verifies his quotations and usage examples through the use of primary sources, rather than relying on secondary ones, enabling his dictionary to rival and even excel the ones before it in its accuracy.
