Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Originally offered in two separate volumes, "A Dictionary of Iraqi Arabic, a staple of Georgetown University Press's world-renowned Arabic language program, now handily provides both the English to Arabic and Arabic to English texts in one volume. Designed for an English speaker learning Arabic, this is a key reference for anyone learning the colloquial speech of Iraq as spoken by educated people in Baghdad. Using romanized transliteration and transcription rather than the Arabic alphabet, it is further enhanced in most cases by having sentences to illustrate how individual word entries are used in context, reinforcing the user's acquisition of colloquial Iraqi.

Book News Annotation:

The dictionary combines two separate dictionaries published in the 1960s, and is meant to be used in a colloquial Iraqi Arabic course in conjunction with a grammar reference in the same series. The focus is on the basic vocabulary of Muslims in Baghdad, though some usage is included from southern Iraq. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
