Persian Basic Course: Volume VIII, Lessons 89-100.
Defense Language Inst., Monterey, CA.
The eighth of 10 volumes of a basic course in Persian is presented that is designed for use in the Defense Language Institute's intensive programs for native English speakers. This is the last book of the structural phase of the basic course series. Each lesson begins with a series of perception drill patterns to be used extensively prior to the introduction of the daily dialogue, which is followed by a translation in idiomatic English. A simplified and concise discussion of the use and function of Arabic derivatives in Persian is presented. The reading section of this volume is more extensive and more advanced in style; it represents a fair sample of the everyday written form of the Persian language. The homework section contains, for the first time, mostly translation materials. Grammar drills utilized new structural patterns as well as new vocabulary and review vocabulary. A list of vocabulary introduced in the dialogue completes the daily lesson. Tapes accompany the text. (SW)
