Intermediate Modern Standard Arabic (revised edition) 

The Elementary Modern Standard Arabic Course (EMSA) is the premier introduction, for the English-speaking student, to the active written language of the contemporary Arab world. Expressly designed for the beginning student, the course is written by a team of Arabic language teachers consisting of native and non-native Arabic speakers, linguists and people whose primary interests are literature and allied areas. It implements an audio-lingual approach to language teaching while presenting the elements of Modern Standard Arabic as written and spoken in the contemporary Arab World. Volume 1 is complete in itself and presents a practical introduction to the writing system of Arabic and to its pronunciation, with reading and writing pronunciation drills. Thirty lessons provide a basic working knowledge of Arabic. Each lesson contains a text, a vocabulary, grammar and drills including oral and written comprehension passages. An Arabic-English glossary completes the volume. The course continues in Volume 2, which extends the knowledge of vocabulary, grammar and expression. Fifteen further lessons are followed by appendices which give reference information.

A New Arabic Grammar of the Written Language

A New Arabic Grammar of the Written Language
Key to a New Arabic Grammar of the written language 
Supplement: Selections from The Holy Quran

Author: J.A. Haywood, H.M. Nahmad
John A. Haywood, the author, spent many years as a British civil servant and academic in Sudan. His grammar is the outcome of a lifetime of study of Arabic. Haywood and Nahmad, as the grammar is affectionately called by students of Arabic, came out in 1965. It is used in universities all over the world, and has been translated into Spanish.
The grammar gives the English grammatical terms, so it is also a useful grammar for anyone teaching English in the Middle East where English can be simplified by pointing out its differences with Arabic. Arabic is a much older language than English and has dropped most of the awkward complexities that English still has in favor of a logical simplicity that was, one might say, codified, in the Abbasid period in Iraq in the 9th century AD. The enumeration of the differences between English and Arabic for the purpose of making English easier for Arabic speakers has yet to be done, but Haywood’s grammar would provide a starting point and a skeleton for such an endeavor.
Haywood and Nahmad provide the Arabic terms in brackets (one time) for the grammatical points he mostly describes in English, of course. You have to know your English grammar from the old school pretty well. There are none of the modern English grammar neologisms such as “Demonstrators” for indefinite or definite article, or “helping verb” for present and past perfect. There is no present or past perfect in Arabic. As in yet another language which is older than English, French, these problems have dropped by the wayside in the Arabic language, and Arabic has only the present, the past, the future and the “command” forms. A better example of what I mean by the fact that you have to know the “real” basis of English grammar, and not the neologisms, to appreciate this book, is that you have to know what subjunctive and jussive mean, for example.
Some of the most judiciously researched parts of the book are the introduction and the selections from Arabic Literature. His selection reads like high points of Arab, and thus, “humanity’s” culture: Ibn Khaldun, The Arabian Nights, Tawfiq al-Hakim’s “Diary of a Country Prosecutor,” for example.

Elementary Arabic: A Series Planned by Frederic Du Pre Thornton


 Lecturer in Persian in the University of Cambridge, and some time Fellow of Trinity College Cambridge at the University Press 1909 . PREFACE THIS Reading 7 Book is the second of three which were planned by the late Mr Thornton for his Arabic Series. The first, published in 1907, contains certain extracts from the Koran, a portion pp. 13 64 of Wrights Arabic Reading-Book, a grammatical analysis of the Koranic text, and a glossary the third, which I hope to bring out next year, will comprise the remainder of Wrights work, a glossary, and brief explanatory notes. The present volume is marked by some novel features. 1. The selected passages are taken from texts and many scripts which, so far as I know, have not hitherto been edited by any European scholar. 2. They have been chosen and arranged in chronological order with the purpose of illustrating the literary, social, and religious history of the Arabs. 3. Notes have been added at the foot of each page, partly to explain grammatical and linguistic difficulties, and partly to supply such literary and historical information as is indispensable. I will now state the various sources from which I have derived the nineteen extracts included in this book. I. The manners, customs, and beliefs of the Pre-Islamic Arabs. This passage is taken from the Mustatraf, an extensive anthology compiled by Muhammad ibn Ahmad al-Khatib al- Abshihi, who died about 1450 A
