MEDIA REVIEWS
'This highly accessible book serves two constituencies: Arabists who wish to learn the basics of linguistic theory and how it applies to Arabic, and linguists who wish to learn the basics of Arabic and how it fits into linguistic theory. This double task is performed with great clarity and economy. Karin C. Ryding deserves our thanks for filling this gap in the study of Arabic. Her book will appeal to a wide readership and will be required reading for generations of students.' Yasir Suleiman, His Majesty Sultan Qaboos Bin Sa'id Professor of Modern Arabic Studies, University of Cambridge
'Addressing itself almost exclusively to the Arabic of writing and formal declamation, this work provides a much-needed introductory framework for applying the analytical principles of general linguistics to the language.' David Wilmsen, American University of Beirut
'... thanks to its clarity and precision, it will be a very valuable tool both for advanced students and non-specialist teachers of Arabic ...' Manuel Sartori, translated from Bulletin critique des annales islamologiques
