By Karin C. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, ISBN It serves elementary to advanced level learners: all technical terms—whether conventional grammatical terms, technical linguistic terms, or terms specific to Arabic grammar—are defined and amply exemplified. Throughout the book, when a technical term is used, a more conventional alternate term is added for the beginning student.

Additional clarifications and alternative analyses are often provided in footnotes, and for the advanced specialist there are also generous references to published works for follow-up research. In dealing with MSA, with its multilayered diglossia, there is always the problem of how to define the language to be covered. With the goal of describing contemporary expository prose reflecting a broad range of social and cultural values and interests, R has based her description on a corpus primarily of newspapers and magazines, but also of novels and nonfiction, gathered over a ten-year period.

The grammar description is limited to items occurring in the corpus, although alternative analyses or rarer items not occurring in the corpus but current in Arabic writing today are identified in footnotes. In comparing MSA and Classical Arabic, the Arabic of the early Islamic period, R found that there were few structural inconsistencies between them and that the major differences were stylistic and lexical: MSA is a streamlined Classical Arabic.

Citations in the book are given in phonemic transcription as well as in voweled Arabic script. It is a survey of the basic sentence structures: types of sentence, word order, constituent components of the sentence, negation of equational verbless sentences, verb-subject agreement, topic-comment constructions, and doubly transitive verbs.

The remaining thirty-five chapters are morphology-oriented with relevant observations on syntax [End Page ] inserted often. The coverage is comprehensive and detailed. The presentation of features follows the pattern of definition, semantics, and then form, with each variation in form or structure presented in its own numbered section with examples and further points on meaning and usage. Points of contrast with English grammar are highlighted. There is thus quite detailed coverage of all structures.
