The development of Arab-American identity( Book )

7 editions published between 1994 and 1997 in English and held by 451 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"By the early twenty-first century, the United States will experience a demographic change as those groups previously thought of as minorities become the majority. Arab-Americans, a fast-growing group from Asia and northern Africa, are among those who will soon form part of this new majority. The Development of Arab-American Identity offers an account of the Arab-American experience from the early immigration to the present day."--BOOK JACKET. "What do Arab-Americans think of traditional American values? How do they perceive their treatment as new immigrants? Have they been seriously alienated from the dominant culture? This collection of essays answers these questions, dealing in particular with the contemporary scene. After the historical background has been set, the essays in this book deal with the struggle for religious, political, cultural, and social identity, all of which involve coping with unconscious and conscious stereotyping and marginalization of Arabs and Arab-Americans."--BOOK JACKET
Elementary modern standard Arabic by Peter F Abboud( Book )

40 editions published between 1983 and 2006 in 5 languages and held by 394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Elementary Modern Standard Arabic Course (EMSA), published in 1983, is the premier introduction, for the English-speaking student, to the active written language of the Arab world. Expressly designed for the beginning student, the course is written by a team of Arabic language teachers consisting of native and non-native Arabic speakers, linguists and people whose primary interests are literature and allied areas. It implements an audio-lingual approach to language teaching while presenting the elements of Modern Standard Arabic as written and spoken in the contemporary Arab World. Volume 1 is complete in itself and presents a practical introduction to the writing system of Arabic and to its pronunciation, with reading and writing pronunciation drills. Thirty lessons provide a basic working knowledge of Arabic. Each lesson contains a text, a vocabulary, grammar and drills including oral and written comprehension passages. An Arabic-English glossary completes the volume. The course continues in Volume 2, which extends the knowledge of vocabulary, grammar and expression. Fifteen further lessons are followed by appendices which give reference information

Kurdish-English dictionary, dialect of Sulaimania, Iraq by Ernest N McCarus( Book )

15 editions published in 1967 in 4 languages and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The vocabulary contained in this dictionary encompasses the four volumes of this course in kurdish--(1) the basic course, (2) newspaper kurdish, (3) kurdish essays, and (4) kurdish short stories. Also included are items from other selections from the kurdish press and expressions recorded from native speakers of the sulaimania dialect. The script is based on the arabic-persian writing system and in its ideal form is nearly phonemic. The items are arranged for the sake of consistency and easy reference according to the phonemic (romanized) transcription. An explanation of this system is provided in the introduction. In this transcription no word begins with a vowel, all vowel-initial words being listed under glottal stop. Each item is also given in the left column in the kurdish script. Special attention is given to the indication of the object of verbal clauses. These materials are published by the university of michigan press, 615 east university street, ann arbor, michigan, 48106. (am)
Kurdish basic course : dialect of Sulaimania, Iraq by Jamal Jalal Abdulla( Book )

10 editions published in 1967 in English and Arabic and held by 186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This beginning course, designed for the student with some knowledge of linguistics, follows the audiolingual approach in teaching the phonology, basic structure, and vocabulary of the educated kurdish dialect of sulaimania, iraq. The cultural content of the material provides the student with a general background of sulaimanian culture. Part I, phonology, introduces and classifies the kurdish sound system and includes contrastive drills on the most difficult consonants. Part ii, spoken kurdish, consists of 13 lesson units containing basic sentence sections in which new words and structures are introduced through build-ups, sections on vocabulary, grammatical notes, and drills. Part iii, written kurdish, introduces the writing system which is based on the arabic-persian script. The kurdish alphabetic forms are contrasted with arabic and persian. A transition is also made in these units from conversational to literary style. Part iii may be used after completion of, or concurrently with, part ii. It may also be used concurrently with "newspaper kurdish" (volume I of the readers of the same course). Also included in the course are tape recordings and a "kurdish-english dictionary" by the same authors. These materials are published by the university of michigan press, 615 east university street, ann arbor, michigan, 48106. (am)

A reference grammar of Egyptian Arabic by Ernest T Abdel-Massih( Book )

6 editions published between 1979 and 2009 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Originally published in 1979, this classic reference work presents definitions of grammatical and linguistic terms for spoken Egyptian Arabic in dictionary form from "active participles" through "writing system." Entries feature definitions and examples of all the grammatical features including phonology, morphology, and syntax. Aimed at the intermediate to advanced student of Egyptian Arabic, this volume presupposes a basic knowledge of Egyptian Arabic. Arabic lexical items are presented in romanized transliteration and are therefore accessible to those who are not familiar with Arabic script. -- Back cover
English grammar for students of Arabic : the study guide for those learning Arabic by Ernest N McCarus( Book )

5 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

English Grammar for students of Arabic introduces you to the English grammar that will be useful for learning Arabic. Each grammatical term and structure is defined and its usage illustrated in both English and Arabic, pointing out similarities and differences and alerting you to common pitfalls. Once you understand the terms and concepts as they apply to your own language, it will be easier for you to understand what is being introduced in your textbook and by your teacher. The Arabic dealt with here is Modern Standard Arabic, the written and spoken language of formal communication. It does not parallel any particular textbook and may serve as a complement to any Arabic course. As textbooks for colloquial Arabic dialects (Egyptian, Moroccan, Levantine, Iraqi, etc.) use essentially the same grammatical terminology, this handbook is equally suitable for colloquial Arabic programs. -- from Introduction (p. 1)
A course in Levantine Arabic by Ernest N McCarus( Book )

A programmed course in modern literary Arabic phonology and script by Ernest N McCarus( Book )

18 editions published between 1964 and 2003 in English and Arabic and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Three sets of instructional materials for the teaching of Arabic phonology and script have been prepared on the basis of studies of (1) the phonologies of American English and Modern Literary Arabic (mla), (2) the mla writing system, and (3) the vocabularies of 11 Arabic textbooks used in the United States. The effectiveness of these materials was tested in the classroom, and revisions were made to prepare them for general use. In order to make the materials as widely usable as possible, fully-programmed materials for the learning of the writing system and pronunciation of mla are being prepared. These materials (after completion, testing, and revision) will be the first to teach the Arabic writing system simultaneously with Arabic phonology. The earlier lessons are being adapted for presentation on the Appleton-Century-Crofts' Portable Laboratory System (a multi-programmable laboratory teaching system). This document comprises a description of a typical programmed unit of four parts: (1) pronunciation drills of Arabic sounds, (2) reading drills for visual recognition and oral production of the sounds (the letters appearing independently and joined in syllables and words), (3) writing drills for proper production of letters and their combinations, and (4) a test for evaluating the students' performance.
