Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The demand for information on learning Arabic has grown spectacularly as English-speaking people have come to realize how much there is yet to know about other parts of the world. It is fitting that this Arabic Language Handbook, complementing Georgetown University Press's exceptional Arabic language textbooks, is the first in a new series: Georgetown Classics in Arabic Language and Linguistics. Sparked by the new demand, this reprint of a genuinely ''gold-standard'' language volume provides a streamlined reference on the structure of the Arabic language and issues in Arabic linguistics, from dialects to literature. Originally published in 1957, the essential information on the structure of the language remains accurate, and it continues to be the most concise reference summary for researchers, linguists, students, area specialists, and others interested in Arabic.

Book News Annotation:

Bateson (education, Harvard U.) produced the reference for the Center for Applied Linguistics as part of a series on African and Asian languages. It outlines the structure of the language, the history of classical Arabic, and the linguistic practice of the Arabs. Students<- ->in class or on the ground—have found it useful over the decades, as have linguists wanting a general description of the language. A supplemental bibliography provides recent references. There is no index. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
