Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

More people than ever are studying Arabic, as the region becomes increasingly important in terms of business and politics, in addition ot its perennial appeal in terms of history and culture. Students receive all the necessary tools for a well-organized approach to a complex language with this introductory manual. The authors, a pair of seasoned teachers of Arabic, begin each chapter with a text embodying the points to be discussed. The simple, narrative-style texts feature a variety of elements from everyday Middle Eastern life. An inductive analysis follows, with a natural progression from specifics to generalities. Grammatical points are introduced gradually, and the carefully chosen vocabulary terms include those that arise most often in spoken and written Arabic. helpful vocabulary list appears in the appendixes. Unabridged republication of the edition published by Princeton University Press, Princeton, NJ, 1957.
