This book is a reference grammar to support any modern Standard Arabic course. It is particularly useful for those students starting out in the study of Arabic. Each chapter makes the fewest possible assumptions about the student's knowledge, aiming rather to group the whole of its subject in one known and accessible place. There is also interaction between the categories; and to allow for this fact, the explanations contain much cross-reference. Similarly no hard line has been drawn between morphology and syntax. The Arabic used in the book is from modern life; from the office, the academy, the departmental meeting, the worksite and so on. Nothing solely historic or academic is included. The book includes an Arabic index, grammatical index and glossary of grammatical terms. Accessible introduction to a difficult area of Arabic language Transliteration used where useful Indexes to supplement detailed cross-references in the text (Formerly Modern Standard Arabic: A Concise Grammar)
