Pashto basic course by Oscar Luis Chavarría-Aguilar( Book )

5 editions published in 1962 in English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This student text and the accompanying "instructor's handbook" were developed for use in a one-year, semi-intensive course for native speakers of english. These materials are not designed for self instruction, but are for classroom use with a native speaker of pashto and an instructor with some knowledge of linguistics. The dialect of pashto represented here is that of eastern afghanistan. Since this course is intended to present basic concepts of pronunciation and structure, it provides intensive practice in recognizing and producing the phonemes of the language before presenting points of structure. The articulation of each sound is first described and then the instructor drills the students in recognizing and repeating the sound. The lessons in structure which follow the pronunciation section are composed of--(1) sentences which present new forms, (2) notes on grammar and alternate forms (to be read as homework or covered in class), (3) oral drills, and (4) the new vocabulary items given in context. All the pashto material is written in phonemic transcription rather than the traditional arabic script. Appended are a "summary of verb types" chart and several very short "miscellaneous readings." Information on this text may be obtained from the chairman, dept. Of near eastern studies, univ. Of michigan, ann arbor, michigan 48104. (jd)

A short introduction to the writing system of Pashto by Oscar Luis Chavarría-Aguilar( Book )

2 editions published in 1962 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The pashto writing system is briefly described here for speakers of english. The principal letters and their modified forms are presented and the principles of juncture and word division are treated. The use of each symbol is illustrated by examples in pashto script with phonetic transcriptions and english glosses. The author identifies those features of this script which will present particular difficulty for beginning students of the written language. The linguistic terminology used presupposes some knowledge of linguistics or training in pashto by the reader. Information on this document can be obtained from the chairman, department of near eastern studies, university of michigan, ann arbor 48104. (jd)
Pashto instructor's handbook by Oscar Luis Chavarría-Aguilar( Book )

2 editions published in 1962 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The materials in this handbook consist of 64 pronunciation drills for the "pashto basic course." These drills are based on a contrastive analysis of pashto and english phonology and are to be administered by a native speaker. Sixty pashto items are included in each drill, 30 containing the particular sound being taught and 30 containing contrasting sounds. The teacher first identifies the sound and reads sample items. Then the students listen to the drills and check occurrences of the sound in their texts. If the class has correctly distinguished contrasting sounds, the teacher then drills them on the pronunciation of the same items. Information on these materials may be obtained from the chairman, dept. Of near eastern studies, univ. Of michigan, ann arbor 48104. (jd)

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

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 2 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.
