Taj Al-a'roos was one of the most old Arabic dictionaries which refers to the language of Egypt. There was only some terms (not more than 15 terms) representing the language of the Egyptians in the dictionaries that was written before this one. This was the motivating reason behind choosing Al-taj among other dictionaries .

The second one was represented by creating a dictionary according to the rhyme system/ followed by Al-Zubaidi in Altaj taking into consideration the linguistic origion of each term.
