The writing and reading system of arabic is presented in a text developed on the basis of linguistic theory and the pedagogy of teaching foreign languages. Arabic writing is related to arabic sounds in graded steps. The arabic sounds represent both modern literary arabic and colloguial arabic, in this case the cairene arabic of educated egyptians in cairo. Grammatical notes are provided to clarify the relations between structure and script. The text includes visual aids in the form of frames and diagrams. (kl)
Beginning Arabic. A linguistic approach: from cultivated Cairene to formal Arabic by Sami A Hanna( Book )

22 editions published between 1965 and 1973 in English and Arabic and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written for the linguistically-oriented student, this nine-unit text presents a carefully structured introduction to the arabic language. The content moves from sounds to letters, from spoken patterns to written forms, and from familiar to formal style. Prefacing the lesson units are introductory notes on the arabic language and the structural and cultural content, a list of symbols and abbreviations, a phonological chart, and a diagram of the speech organs. Appended are supplementary passages for comprehension and reading practice, grammatical notes and index, and an English-arabic glossary indicating both formal and colloquial forms. Related text ED 011 110, "writing arabic," and pre-recorded tapes are intended for use with this text. The educated dialect of cairo was selected as being the most representative, socially acceptable, and understandable throughout the arab countries. (am)

Dialect Variations and the Teaching of Arabic as a Living Language by Sami A Hanna( Book )

2 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Because of the diversity of Arabic dialects (Lebanese, Iraqi, Syrian, Algerian, Moroccan, Libyan, Sudanese, Saudi Arabian, Palestinian, and Egyptian), and the fact that Arabic writing allows for a wide range of different pronunciations, the question faced by students is where to begin. It is instructive to consider how this problem is dealt with in modern foreign language teaching, English being a case in point. It is "inconceivable" to teach English without specific reference to the spoken forms actually used either in the United States or in the United Kingdom. The dialect form chosen should be an educated form of speech and have "significant applicability." The foreign learner should find Cultivated Cairene Arabic an especially useful dialect with which to start learning Arabic. It provides a relatively smooth transition from the spoken to the literary language, particularly as used by mass media writers. It is the form of language spoken by a socially acceptable group representative of modern Arab culture as a whole. (Any other cultivated dialect of the important Arab Centers, however, may also accomplish the goals of teaching beginning Arabic.) The major categories of Arabic are defined as (1) Classical or Koranic, (2) Literary or Contemporary Literary, and (3) Colloquial or Spoken. The authors suggest a teaching method moving from Cultivated Spoken to the Literary. (Amm)
