A Short Reference Grammar of Iraqi Arabic is the only volume of its
kind, reflecting Iraqi Arabic as spoken by educated Muslims in
Baghdad. With all the Arabic transcribed, it is written for beginners
as well as Arabic speakers wanting to learn the dialect. It covers the
phonology, morphology (word formation of nouns, verbs, pronouns,
adjectives, and numerals, achieved by adding prefixes and suffixes to
roots), and syntax, teaching the reader how to make the sounds, form
words, and construct sentences.
