Title: A Reference Grammar of Syrian Arabic with Audio CD
Written By: Mark W. Cowell
URL: http://www.press.georgetown.edu
Description:

This important reissue, enhanced with an audio CD to supplement the text,
is another addition to Georgetown's world-renowned Arabic language-learning
materials and is considered to be one of the most outstanding descriptions
of any Arabic dialect written for the English-speaking world. It is
comprehensive in its coverage—ranging from phonology (how sounds are
organized and used) to morphology (sound, syllable, and word structure),
with an analysis that is insightful and original. It contains hints on how
to master nuances in dialectical pronunciation, as well as the differences
of meaning in their various forms.

Based on the dialect of Damascus, the language covered here is part of what
has variously been called "Syrian Arabic," "Eastern Arabic," and "Levantine
Arabic," encompassing the dialects of Beirut, Amman, and Jerusalem—as well
as Damascus—with references made to regional variants. In a world drawn
ever closer to events in the Middle East, this comprehensive grammar
reference is yet another extraordinary addition to the growing library of
Arabic language-learning materials published by Georgetown University Press.
