A BASIC COURSE IN MOROCCAN ARABIC. ARABIC SERIES, NUMBER EIGHT.
HARRELL, RICHARD S.; AND OTHERS
THIS BOOK CONSISTS OF TWO MAJOR PARTS, LESSONS AND DIALOGS. BOTH THE LESSONS AND THE DIALOGS ARE ACCOMPANIED THROUGHOUT WITH ENGLISH TRANSLATIONS. PRELIMINARY MATERIAL ON PRONUNCIATION, WITH DRILLS, PRECEDES THE LESSONS. APPENDED TO THE LESSONS ARE A GLOSSARY AND AN INDEX OF GRAMMATICAL POINTS COVERED. EACH LESSON CONSISTS OF FOUR PARTS--(1) TEXT, (2) GRAMMATICAL NOTES, (3) EXERCISES, AND (4) VOCABULARY. EACH TEXT CONSISTS OF A SMALL NUMBER OF PHRASES AND SENTENCES ILLUSTRATING SOME GRAMMATICAL POINT OR POINTS. THE GRAMMATICAL NOTES PROVIDE AN EXPLANATION OF THE NEW GRAMMATICAL MATERIAL INTRODUCED IN THE TEXT. THE EXERCISES ARE DESIGNED TO DRILL THE STUDENT ON THE NEW GRAMMAR AND VOCABULARY OF EACH LESSON. THE LESSONS ARE ORIENTED ENTIRELY TOWARD THE POINT OF TEACHING THE BASIC STRUCTURE OF THE LANGUAGE. IN ORDER NOT TO DISTRACT THE STUDENT FROM THE PRIMARY TASK OF LEARNING THE STRUCTURE OF MOROCCAN ARABIC, CONSIDERATIONS OF CULTURAL DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE UNITED STATES AND MOROCCO HAVE BEEN AVIODED, AND THE VOCABULARY HAS BEEN RESTRICTED TO FEWER THAN 650 BASIC ENTRIES. THE SECOND PART OF THE BOOK IS A SERIES OF 97 SHORT DIALOGS WHICH ARE DESIGNED TO PROVIDE CONVERSATIONAL MATERIAL FOR A VARIETY OF SIMPLE SOCIAL SITUATIONS. THIS BOOK IS AVAILABLE FROM THE DIRECTOR OF PUBLICATIONS, INSTITUTE OF LANGUAGES AND LINGUISTICS, GEORGETOWN UNIVERSITY, WASHINGTON, D.C. 20007, 395 PAGES. (TC)
