A Dictionary of Moroccan Arabic complements A Basic Course in MoroccanArabic (text and CDs) and A Short Reference Grammar of Moroccan Arabic. It presents, in an impressive range, the core vocabulary of everyday life inMorocco-from the kitchen to the mosque, from the hardware store to the natural world of plants and animals. It contains myriad examples of usage, including formulaic phrases and idiomatic expressions. Understandable throughout the nation, it is based primarily on the standard dialect ofMoroccans from the cities of Fez, Rabat, and Casablanca. All Arabic citations are in an English transcription, making it invaluable toEnglish-speaking non-Arabists, travelers, and tourists-as well as being an important resource tool for students and scholars in the Arabic language-learning field.
