Description from the publisher:
Conceived to be a practical reference grammar for those who may have basic skills in Moroccan Arabic, this volume contains a short reintroduction to the phonology of Moroccan Arabic, and then continues to deal more in depth with the morphology and syntax of this particular Arabic dialect. It concludes with an interesting Appendix containing annotated texts in urban Moroccan Arabic.
In not using Arabic script, transcribed for the English-speaking student for easier comprehension, A Short Reference Grammar of Moroccan Arabic teaches the spoken language of the urban people of the northwestern part of Morocco, especially Fez, Rabat, and Casablanca.
The accompanying CD is keyed to the text, demonstrating the pronunciation of the Arabic transcribed in the book.
