Originally published in 1895, the aim of this book was to provide the reader with
a guide to the contemporary spoken Arabic of Egypt, with special reference to
the speech of Cairo and its neighbourhood. The greater part of the text provides
the reader with the basic grammatical structure of the language. Additionally,
there is a concise introduction explaining the different varieties of spoken Arabic
in their relationship with Classical Arabic. Reading exercises and a sizeable
glossary are contained towards the end of the text. This book will be of value to
anyone with an interest in Arabic and the history of linguistics.
