Language Treatment in Egypt.
Jernudd, Bjorn H.; Garrison, Gary L.
This is a collection of eight essays dealing with various aspects of language treatment in Egypt. The first essay attempts a tentative typology characterizing the role of the Arabic language as a unifying or divisive force within and among the countries in which it is spoken as a native language. This essay also makes some initial reflections on Egypt's language policy in the educational system. The second essay reports on the structure and activities of the Arabic Language Academy. This is followed by: a review of numbers 28-32 of the Arabic Language Academy Journal; a brief report on the activities of the Arab Science Union; a report on the Franklin Book Programs, a plan to replace English by Arabic in university science texts; a bibliographic review of language and linguistics articles in Arabic periodicals; a report on the teaching of linguistics in Egypt; and a brief listing of useful books and articles on language in Egypt.
