David ben Avraham al-Fasi - Account of his life


David ben Avraham al-Fasi, who dates to the tenth century, is the author of a comprehensive and voluminous Arabic-Hebrew dictionary. In his dictionary, al-Fasi exposes the errors in the biblical translation of the Fayyumite (Sa'adyah). Portions of al-Fasi's dictionary have been translated, and the manuscript still exists to this day.
