A DICTIONARY OF IRAQI ARABIC, ENGLISH-ARABIC. ARABIC SERIES, NUMBER SIX.
CLARITY, BEVERLY E.; AND OTHERS
THIS DICTIONARY OF IRAQI ARABIC IS BASED, IN FORMAT, ON THE ENGLISH-GERMAN SECTION OF THE BILINGUAL GERMAN AND ENGLISH "DICTIONARY OF EVERYDAY USAGE," PUBLISHED BY HENRY HOLT AND COMPANY. THE AIM OF THIS WORK HAS BEEN TO PRESENT, FOR THE FIRST TIME, A DICTIONARY FOR ENGLISH SPEAKERS CONTAINING THE BASIC VOCABULARY OF THE IRAQI DIALECT. TECHNICAL TERMS HAVE BEEN LARGELY AVOIDED. THE USAGE IS PRIMARILY THAT OF MUSLIM SPEAKERS FROM BAGHDAD, BUT SOME SOUTHERN IRAQI USAGE IS ALSO INCLUDED. THE ILLUSTRATIVE ENGLISH SENTENCES ARE BASED ON EVERYDAY CONVERSATIONAL USAGE WITH A DELIBERATE AVOIDANCE OF LITERARY STYLE. IN A FEW CASES, SOMEWHAT AWKWARD ENGLISH CONSTRUCTIONS HAVE BEEN RESORTED TO IN ORDER TO GIVE A CLEARER PICTURE OF IRAQI SENTENCE STURCTURE. THIS DOCUMENT IS AVAILABLE FROM THE DIRECTOR OF PUBLICATIONS, INSTITUTE OF LANGUAGES AND LINGUISTICS, GEORGETOWN UNIVERSITY, WASHINGTON, D.C. 20007, 202 PAGES. (TC)
