Modern Written Arabic, Vol. 3.
Naja, A. Nashat
This third and final volume builds on the previous two volumes prepared for use in the Foreign Service Institute programs of Arabic instruction for members of the United States Foreign Service and is intended to be used with the help of a native-speaking Arabic instructor and with tape recordings. This volume is intended to provide recognitional mastery of many additional vocabulary items and more extensive exposure to complex morphological and syntactic patterns as well as to a wide range of sophisticated Arabic prose styles. Each lesson presents several selections based on Arabic newspaper materials followed by a word list including new idioms and expressions as well as vocabulary items. It also presents derivations of common root forms to help the student decipher meanings using knowledge already gained. It is assumed that students can already read live newspaper material as a result of Volume II and this volume will help them read increasingly sophisticated prose with greater independence.
