Title: Phonology and Morphology of Arabic
Written By: Janet C.E. Watson
Series Title: Phonology of the World's Languages

This is an account of the phonology and morphology of modern spoken Arabic,
the first to be published in any language and based largely on the author's
research. Dr Watson's approach is theoretically innovative and aware, but
accessible to Arabic language specialists outside linguistics. Broad in
coverage, this is an important and pioneering book.
