Items in Middle Eastern Languages
(romanised): 1971 to 2007
N.B.: These "Middle Eastern language" items comprise work in original Arabic, Farsi, and Turkish. Some items in Greek (from Cyprus) appear in a later section of items in "English and European languages". This division is an intuitive one, which obviously could be challenged on some grounds and supported on others. There is certainly no intention to offend language users who may consider themselves more (or less) "European" or "Middle Eastern".
Items translated to Arabic from English form the second part of this section.
