Title: Sudan Arabic Texts
Subtitle: With Translation and Glossary
Edited By: S. Hillelson
Description:

Originally published in 1935, this volume provides a selection of texts
illustrating the Arabic dialect as spoken in the Anglo-Egyptian Sudan. The
extracts were chosen as specimens of native speech, but many of them
provide an additional insight into the culture and traditions of the area.
Most of the material was collected at first hand or contributed by native
collaborators, the remainder is taken from printed sources. The assembled
texts are all dual language, with the English version being contained on
the opposite page to the original. This book will be of value to anyone
with an interest in Sudan Arabic culture and linguistics.
