  • Yes, as a language learner because I can't study words that have the same roots if there is no search engine. @IkWeetHetOokNiet Feb 18, 2020 at 20:34

Classical Arabic dictionary are not arranged in word alphabetical order they are actually arranged in root alphabetical order

meaning once you open the dictionary on the root , you will find all words related to that root in that page and the following pages,( regardless of the starting letter of those words related to that root)

for example i used the root W Z N = وزن in this online dictionary https://www.almaany.com/ar/dict/ar-ar/%D9%88%D8%B2%D9%86/

the rest of the page show all possibilities to use the root W Z N

  • you misunderstand me I need to find words based on the same root word فعل you can check this link for examples:modrsbook.com/2016/10/qafih.html Feb 10, 2020 at 13:28
