♥ Book Title : A New Approach to Teaching Arabic Grammar
☯ Full Synopsis : "Abdallah Nacereddine first taught Arabic in the United States before moving to Switzerland, where he led Arabic language courses at the League of Arab States and in conjunction with the Arab-Swiss Chamber of Commerce. He directed his own Institute for Arabic Language Teaching in Geneva, Lausanne, Bern, and Zurich, and taught Arabic at the United Nations in Geneva for over twenty-two years. At present, he is teaching at the International Labour Office. His teaching materials are the result of this experience and have been thoroughly tested in class. One of the first Arabic grammar books was published in the 13th century, under the title al-Alfia (didactic treatise in one thousand lines) by Ibn Malek (600-673 A. H. / 1203-1274 A. D) Since that time, Arabic grammar has not changed at all. In 1636, Thomas Erpenius published his definitive work, Grammatica Arabica, in Latin at Leiden. He followed a methodology which suited the European mind and adopted a specific terminology, which had to be applied by every non Arabic-speaking grammarian. Following this, several Arabic grammar books were published in different languages. Contrary to the grammar of other languages which have continued to evolve, Arabic grammar has remained unchanged. There are already a certain number of Arabic grammar books. What then is the point of publishing yet another? From his childhood, the author studied Arabic grammar, mainly from the al-Alfia treatise. He started to teach it in exactly the same archaic manner that he had learnt it. It was when he began to teach Arabic at the United Nations in Geneva to non-Arabic speakers in a multicultural context that he had to learn a new teaching method and its terminology. He therefore started to follow the European methodology for teaching Arabic grammar and to use its terminology."Article| Abdallah Nacereddine| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "This book explores aspects of the Arabic Grammatical Tradition and Arabic Linguistics from both a theoretical and descriptive perspective. It also touches on issues of relevance to other disciplines, particularly Qur'anic exegesis and jurisprudence. The links between the fields of language and religion are historically strong in the Arabic and Islamic traditions as so much time and effort was spent by grammarians in interpreting the precise meanings of two of the main sources of Islamic jurisprudence - the Quran and Hadith. Prof Suleiman has assembled an international team of experts in this area and presents a thorough review of the sources and arguments. The book will be of interest to all students, researchers and teachers of Arabic Language and Culture."Article| Yasir Suleiman| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Arabic Second Language Learning and Effects of Input, Transfer, and Typology
☯ Full Synopsis : "In 2010, Alhawary published Arabic Second Language Acquisition of Morphosyntax, which provided empirical data on Arabic second language acquisition (SLA) strategies. This proposed book follows the volume, using data to delve into issues of input, transfer, and typology. Alhawary's book relies on Arabic as a second language (L2) data from speakers whose first languages (L1s) are Chinese and Russian and aims to answer the following questions: How do adult Arabic L2 learners come to know about the combinatorial properties of morphemes, words, phrases, and clauses? Do they develop L2 knowledge systematically or randomly? Can they acquire the same range of syntactic and morphological knowledge as native speakers and to what extent? What are the developmental stages or paths, if any, along which Arabic L2 learners progress? What is the role of the native language in learning Arabic a second language? To what extent can input exposure override or minimize the effect of the native language and at what proficiency level? What evidence do the present data provide on the role of a second language (on that of another) and posited claims about such a role? What are other factors that have a bearing on learning Arabic as a second language? Answers will help teachers of Arabic and linguists seeking to understand and develop better methods for teaching Arabic."Article| Mohammad T. Alhawary| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : The Foundations of Grammar
☯ Full Synopsis : "The Arabic grammatical tradition is one of the great traditions in the history of linguistics, yet it is also one that is comparatively unknown to modern western linguistics. The purpose of the present book is to provide an introduction to this grammatical tradition not merely by summarizing it, but by putting it into a perspective that will make it accessible to any linguist trained in the western tradition. The reader should not by put off by the word 'medieval': Arabic grammatical theory shares a number of fundamental similarities with modern linguistic theory. Indeed, one might argue that one reason Arabic theory has gone unappreciated for so long is that nothing like it existed in the West at the time of its 'discovery' by Europeans in the 19th century, when the European orientalist tradition was formed, and that it it only with the development of a Saussurean and Bloomfieldian structural tradition that a better perspective has become possible."Article| Jonathan Owens| Statement ..."
