A Word Count of Modern Arabic Prose.
Landau, Jacob M.
This book presents a word count of Arabic prose based on 60 twentieth-century Egyptian books. The text is divided into an alphabetical list and a word frequency list. This word count is intended as an aid in the: (1) writing of primers and the compilation of graded readers, (2) examination of the vocabulary selection of primers and readers currently in use, (3) comparison of Arabic with other languages, and (4) examination of Arabic and evaluation of its influence on Arab thought and culture. Comparisons are drawn between this study and the one conducted by Moshe Brill. (Author/AM)
