Basic Course in Literary Arabic
The material presented in this workbook, which is in preliminary form under revision, has been designed to introduce the basic aspects of the morphology and syntax of literary Arabic. It is intended to be used with and as a continuation of “The Phonology and Script of Literary Arabic,” by the same authors. These two volumes, together with a forthcoming second volume on morphology and syntax, will provide a full basic course in elementary literary Arabic on the college and university levels. The present volume begins with the most basic grammatical features of the language–such as sentence structure and sentence analysis–and gradually introduces different features on the basis of continuity and grammatical build-up. Dialogs and oral exercises have been included to provide practice in spoken Arabic.
