Title: Beyond Lexical Variation in Modern Standard Arabic
Subtitle: Egypt, Lebanon and Morocco
Written By: Zeinab M.A. Ibrahim
Description:

"Beyond Lexical Variation in Modern Standard Arabic" presents several
aspects concerning Modern Standard Arabic. It analyzes the different forms
of lexical variation, and the causes for these variations. This starting
point led to many other vital issues related to the present state of the
Arabic Language such as language planning, native speakers' identity and
fears and most importantly the relationship between the different Arabic
varieties: Classical, Modern Standard, and dialects. The book analyzes
lexical variation comprehensively and provides deep insights on the present
state of the language with some speculations on its future.
