Books Info:

The Georgetown Dictionary of Iraqi Arabic [ARA] free pdf The Georgetown Dictionary of Iraqi Arabic is a modernized, up-to-date dialectal Arabic language resource that promotes successful daily communication with native Arabic speakers. Students, teachers, and scholars of Arabic will welcome this dramatically overhauled edition of one of the only Arabic dialect dictionaries of its kind -- establishing a new standard in Arabic reference. The dictionary represents a new generation of Arabic language reference materials designed to help English speakers gain proficiency in colloquial Arabic. Thoroughly updated, expanded, and enhanced, this dictionary supersedes the seminal Iraqi dictionaries originally published by Georgetown University Press in the 1960s and then reissued in the early 2000s. Created in cooperation with Georgetown University Press and the Linguistic Data Consortium (LDC) of the University of Pennsylvania, this new dictionary draws from the LDC's extensive lexical database of colloquial Iraqi, and includes more than a thirty percent increase in terms for contemporary speech than found in the original dictionaries. This comprehensive reference focuses on conversation, emphasizing the colloquial speech of educated residents of Baghdad. The dictionary assumes familiarity with the Arabic alphabet, the standard organization of Arabic dictionaries along the triconsonantal root system, and the formation of Arabic verb forms. * Approximately 17,500 Iraqi Arabic entries * Approximately 10,750 English-to-Iraqi entries * An increase of more than 30 percent in terms that reflect current vocabulary and usage * Provides conventional Arabic script for main entries, and organized by root, as standard for Arabic dictionaries * Employs International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) for all terms to demonstrate correct pronunciation * Offers extensive example sentences to illustrate how the Iraqi words are used * Indicates relevant parts of speech for each Iraqi entry and subentry
