Message 1: Spoken Modern Standard Arabic

Date: Thu, 08 Aug 1996 12:02:21 CDT
From: Mark Mandel <Markdragonsys.com>
Subject: Spoken Modern Standard Arabic
What kinds of differences are there in Modern Standard Arabic as
spoken across the Arab world? I am aware of the scope of
differences between regional vernaculars; I am interested here in
the acrolect.

I am more concerned with secular contexts than with religious
ones. I am interested in both written and (especially) spoken
variation, in such environments as newscasts and lectures. If MSA
is used also in more impromptu contexts, such as perhaps panel
discussions, I would be quite interested in them as well.

I would appreciate both direct information and pointers to printed
or Web sources. If there is interest, I will summarize responses
for the list.

Subject: Language of Jehovah's Witnesses.
Dear linguists,
I'm currently working on my master thesis devoted to verbal aspects of
missionary endeavors, especially those of Jehovah's Witnesses. Therefore
I would highly appreciate any reference concerning this matter.
Best regards,
