Spoken Dari. Preliminary Edition.
Latify, A. Hafiz
This book contains the core of the Dari language instructional program developed by the Foreign Service Institute. Most of the sentences and exercises in the lessons are presented in the Persian script; the spelling represents the actual pronunciation of colloquial Dari. Each lesson includes a set of basic sentences and drills, vocabulary lists, grammatical notes, pronunciation drills, question-and-answer exercises, and a dialogue. A large number of proverbs and sayings are included in the lessons because such sayings are used constantly in Dari, and they give an insight into Afghan culture and thought. (Author/AMH)
