Title: A Student Grammar of Modern Standard Arabic
Written By: Eckehard Schulz
URL: http://www.cambridge.org/9780521833776
Description:

This accessible grammar provides a concise and user-friendly guide to the
structure of Modern Standard Arabic. Using familiar terminology and keeping
theory to a minimum, it is suitable for beginning students as well as those
at a more advanced level. Detailed descriptions of all types of sentence
are given, and numerous tables provide a clear presentation of verbs and
nouns. The most familiar grammatical terms are given in Arabic as well as
in English in order to help the student identify them, and the index is
also presented in both languages for fast and straightforward cross
referencing. Each pattern or rule described is illustrated with authentic
examples from a range of real-life contexts such as newspapers, magazines,
business communication and the Internet, as well as from Arabic literary
texts. Clearly organised and practical, this book will be an invaluable
reference resource for all learners and teachers of Modern Standard Arabic.
