Description:

Using Arabic is a guide to Arabic usage for students who have already
acquired the basics of the language and wish to extend their knowledge.
Focusing mainly on Modern Standard Arabic, it is divided into three clear
sections on varieties of Arabic, grammar, and vocabulary. 'Varieties of
Arabic' describes the linguistic situation in the Arab world, showing
students variations in register through the use of authentic texts. The
vocabulary section is designed not only to expand students' knowledge of
Arabic words, but also to show them which words are most current, and which
are appropriate to different registers. The final chapter provides an
overview of Arabic grammar, giving many modern-day examples, and
highlighting common errors. Clear, readable and easy to consult, Using
Arabic will prove an invaluable reference for students seeking to improve
their fluency and confidence in Arabic.
