I am writing my Ph.D. thesis with LaTeX. As my thesis requires typesetting Arabic text, I was very glad to learn that LuaLaTeX can easily handle that. The questions and knowledge with regard to LaTeX I am primarily interested in surround:

  • LuaLaTeX
  • ledmac/ledpar
  • Biblatex
  • csquotes

I use the following applications:

  • TeXShop
  • BibDesk

I work in LaTeX with the following languages:

  • English/German/Latin
  • Arabic/Persian
  • Greek
  • Syriac

comment "father to" vs. "father of"
Right. I see that the usage of "to" in "like a father to me" is not governed by "father" but by "is". You're right. Is there any reference in BE/AE with respect to "father to" vs. "father of"?

comment one and the same command for different outputs depending on position in document
do you think it is possible to combine this with \xspace? I know, xspace is not usually recommended, but I am using it and now realized that I cannot simply add \xspace to these definitions (e.g.: ...\xdef\Einstein{Einstein\xspace}). Any workaround?

comment distribute contents of two input-files to left and right pages
@Maïeul : ok I see this works for Latin text. Thx. Still I am looking for alternatives.

@Maïeul maybe it would then help if you showed as an answer to this questions how \ledpb works

@Maïeul do you mean \ledpb? I tried it but could not make it work. I'd be glad if you could show me here in an answer how I can use eledpar with manual page breaks on both pages. just a quick minimal example would suffice. you could also do it here: tex.stackexchange.com/a/147018/12277
