A Linguistic Study of Cairene Proverbs. Indiana University Publications, Language Science Monographs Volume 1.
Mahgoub, Fatma Mohammed
This work presents a linguistic study of the proverbs indigenous to Cairo (Egypt) culture. These forms recur in the everyday speech of both learned and unlearned Cairene Arabic speakers. The 900 proverbs, which are presented in phonemic transcription, are analyzed according to their phonological and stylistic characteristics, and then their morphological and syntactical characteristics. Notes, an alphabetical listing of the proverbs with glosses in English, a bibliography, and curriculum vita on the author are appended. (AMM)
