A Dictionary of Moroccan Arabic complements A Basic Course in Moroccan Arabic (text and CDs) and A Short Reference Grammar of Moroccan Arabic. It presents, in an impressive range, the core vocabulary of everyday life in Morocco-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 of Moroccans from the cities of Fez, Rabat, and Casablanca. All Arabic citations are in an English transcription, making it invaluable to English-speaking non-Arabists, travelers, and tourists-as well as being an important resource tool for students and scholars in the Arabic language-learning field.
