Abstract: In this thesis I will explore the meaning of the term "Himyaritic" as used by the early Islamic scholar Muhammad al-Hamdani in his description of the linguistic landscape in early Islamic Yemen. I will compare his description with both pre-Islamic inscriptions as well as modern-day dialectological data.
