Colloquial Arabic; with notes on the vernacular speech of Egypt, Syria, and Mesopotamia, and an appendix on the local characteristics of Algerian dialect
This manual aims at providing an easy guide to the colloquial Arabic of Egypt, Syria, and Mesopotamia.
There are differences of usage and pronunciation between those several parts, but they are differences in detail, not separate languages, and there seems no good reason why they may not be treated reasonably together provided that reference is made, as here, to those differences. To a very large extent those countries have had a common cultural life with close and constant intercourse, and so the language which has served as a medium of that intercourse has a very large common factor.
