Title: Investigating Arabic
Subtitle: Current Parameters in Analysis and Learning
Edited By: Alaa Elgibali
URL: http://www.brill.nl/default.aspx?partid=10&pid=18182
Series Title: Studies in Semitic Language & Linguistics
Description:

This book offers a wide range overview of current research issues in Arabic
linguistics, extending from the general to the specific. It includes in
depth investigations of theoretical and applied topics that are of interest
to general and Arabic linguistics: computational analysis of Arabic, Arabic
dialectology, acquisition of Arabic as a native language, learning and
teaching Arabic as a first or foreign language, sociolinguistic analysis of
Arabic, and the status of Arabic in European academe. Despite the seeming
diversity of the topics, they fall thematically into two major
inter-related categories, analysis and learning. Each chapter is a
thoughtful reflection of a major current trend in the study of Arabic.
