Persian Basic Course: Persian-English Glossary and Notes for Advanced Reading.
Defense Language Inst., Monterey, CA.
A glossary and notes that accompany an advanced reading text for a basic course in Persian are presented. The course is an intensive program for native English speakers offered by the Defense Language Institute. Idiomatic phrases and sentence structures are explained and special grammar and cultural notes are included. A number of lexical items were omitted in order to encourage the use of a regular dictionary by the students. The English equivalents given for each Persian entry relate primarily to the context of the text. The entries are listed in the order they appear on the pages of the text. Tape recordings are available in which exact information is given on the number and location of each lesson in the text. This is followed by the vocabulary and then the text. The vocabulary is recorded in reading style, but the text is recorded in conversational form. In view of the difficulty of parts of the text, complete translations have been prepared and included.
