Introducing Literary Arabic. Preliminary Edition.
Hanna, Sami A.; Greis, Naguib
This 15-unit, linguistically oriented text is designed for two semesters' work in formal Arabic for the student who has completed one or more semesters of semi-intensive study equivalent to the related texts "Beginning Arabic" (ED 012 916) and "Writing Arabic" (ED 011 110) by the same authors. The material is carefully graded. Vocabulary and grammatical structures used in the earlier volumes are expanded in the formal context. Significant social, religious, and geographical material is used as the content, culminating in selections from well known literary sources. Lessons include structure drills, vocabulary arranged according to word function, reading selections, conversations, exercises, paradigms, useful expressions and idioms, and composition practice. Explanatory notes draw attention to grammatical points, and the setting for dialogues and reading passages. An Arabic-English glossary concludes the volume. (MK)
