BEGINNING ARABIC, A LINGUISTIC APPROACH--FROM CULTIVATED CAIRENE TO FORMAL LITERARY ARABIC.
GREIS, NAGUIB; HANNA, SAMI A.
WRITTEN FOR THE LINGUISTICALLY-ORIENTED STUDENT, THIS NINE-UNIT TEXT PRESENTS A CAREFULLY STRUCTURED INTRODUCTION TO THE ARABIC LANGUAGE. THE CONTENT MOVES FROM SOUNDS TO LETTERS, FROM SPOKEN PATTERNS TO WRITTEN FORMS, AND FROM FAMILIAR TO FORMAL STYLE. PREFACING THE LESSON UNITS ARE INTRODUCTORY NOTES ON THE ARABIC LANGUAGE AND THE STRUCTURAL AND CULTURAL CONTENT, A LIST OF SYMBOLS AND ABBREVIATIONS, A PHONOLOGICAL CHART, AND A DIAGRAM OF THE SPEECH ORGANS. APPENDED ARE SUPPLEMENTARY PASSAGES FOR COMPREHENSION AND READING PRACTICE, GRAMMATICAL NOTES AND INDEX, AND AN ENGLISH-ARABIC GLOSSARY INDICATING BOTH FORMAL AND COLLOQUIAL FORMS. RELATED TEXT ED 011 110, "WRITING ARABIC," AND PRE-RECORDED TAPES ARE INTENDED FOR USE WITH THIS TEXT. THE EDUCATED DIALECT OF CAIRO WAS SELECTED AS BEING THE MOST REPRESENTATIVE, SOCIALLY ACCEPTABLE, AND UNDERSTANDABLE THROUGHOUT THE ARAB COUNTRIES. (AM)
