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.
