The Arabic Language Today, Hardback Book

The Arabic Language Today Hardback

Part of the Routledge Library Editions: Language & Literature of the Middle East series


  • Information


This book, first published in 1970, provides a description of the standard Arabic language used today as the universal means of written communication throughout the Arab world and in formal spoken communication (vernaculars differ both from each other and from the standard language).

The principal emphasis is on syntax and morphology of which there exists no comprehensive account.

Phonology and lexicon are treated briefly and there is a chapter on the script.
