Taj ul Uroos min Jawahir il Qamoos تاج العروس من جواهر القاموس by الزبيدي Az Zubaidi

Taj ul Uroos تاج العروس , completed by about 1768 C.E is a compilation from the best and most copious of the preceding Arabic lexicons and other lexicological works. It was derived using Lisan ul Arab لسان العرب and more than 100 other works. Lane said in his Arabic English Lexicon, “I found, from the portion before me, that it would of itself alone suffice to supply the means of comprising an Arabic Lexicon far more accurate and perspicuous, and incomparably more copious, than any hitheto published in Europe.”

Possible further work:
A quick access tool using which you can type roots in transliteration like:
http://revivearabic.blogspot.com/2016/03/arabic-roots-study-arabicalmanac-quranicarabiccorpus-and-others.html
and then access the root pages in Taj al Uroos directly .
Since this will require a lot of time, I want to know how many people would use such tool if I make. Interested people can register their interest by emailing revivearabic @ gmail.com

Demand Counter so far = 1 email received from interested people who want a quick study tool for Taj ul Uroos. So, I assume most of the current readers of my blog posts are not interested in a quick study tool for Taj ul Uroos, atleast for now.

Below are 3 options for achieving this quick study tool for Taj ul Uroos :
1. When demand is sufficient and I have some free time also, I make the tool slowly using few hours from my free time inshaALLAH!
2. Another option is that some one sponsors my time and I do it as dedicated full-time project and complete it in a month or 2 inshaALLAH!
3. Or interested people volunteer their time on this project, I can guide them on how to make the index inshaALLAH!

In any case send me an email!
