Product Description

In a compact, easy-to-use format, Modern Standard Arabic Grammar offers a convenient guide to grammar for any student of Modern Standard Arabic (MSA), the version of Arabic mostly commonly used in journalism, formal writing, and literature. Drawing on over a decade of experience as a full-time teacher of Arabic, Azza Hassanein explains the rules in straightforward English, illustrating usage with examples throughout. The book covers all the rules of grammar and morphology that students require for elementary, intermediate, and advanced levels of Arabic. As a compact guide, it is an ideal auxiliary, no matter what textbook the student is using. While students of the language will find Modern Standard Arabic Grammar extremely helpful, it is also a valuable tool for linguists who want to acquire a clear idea about the skeletal structure of the language, as well as translators who are working with written Arabic. Covering all the important grammatical rules of MSA, from nisba adjectives and nominal and verbal sentences to more complex constructions such as conditional sentences and the subjunctive, this unique handbook fills a real need for the growing number of people worldwide learning Arabic.

What i have to say about this book?

The book is very concise as the title says and the intro. to the book. After reading through the book, i just felt this book is like Aljaroomiyah or other Arabic grammar text that many scholars gave explanation to. 

This book touched almost all basic grammar details in brief. 

But it didn't mention the types of كم there are, so i feel a bit bad as i made a mistake on it in my homework. After that i was liking, why didn't this book mention it. I learned it in madinah book 3 but i forgot. MAsh-Allah. 

Anyway, the book is very good for review after going through many grammar books alhamdulillah.

I would recommend to buy it. The author makes some materials very easy to understand as well. Alhamdulillah. Also, i like the fact the Arabic grammar terms are given in Arabic, which is a great help always. Alhamdulillah.

So, Yea, that's it.
