A Contrastive Study of English and Arabic.
Defense Language Inst., Monterey, CA.
This is a contrastive analysis of English and Modern Literary Arabic. Part one deals with phonology, including suprasegmentals and orthography. Part two deals with morphology, part three with sentence structure, part four with verb phrases, and part five with noun phrases. These sections emphasize structures that present problems to the Arabic-speaking student learning English. Part six is concerned with the meaning and usage of individual English words that are difficult for Arab students. A subject index and a word index conclude the volume. (AM)
