Georgetown Classics in Arabic Language and Linguistics
Originally published in 1979, this classic reference work presents
definitions of grammatical and linguistic terms for spoken Egyptian Arabic
in dictionary form from "active participles" through "writing system."
Entries feature definitions and examples of all the grammatical features
including phonology, morphology, and syntax. Aimed at the intermediate to
advanced student of Egyptian Arabic, this volume presupposes a basic
knowledge of Egyptian Arabic. Arabic lexical items are presented in
romanized transliteration and are therefore accessible to those who are not
familiar with Arabic script.
