More About This Book

Overview

This book will serve as a basis for a developed study of the morphological classes of the irregular verbal and nominal forms and the main phonological changes that occur in the Arabic language. For this purpose, the author presents and studies the forms of the doubled, hamzated, verb with first, 2nd or 3rd weak radical, and the verb that is doubly weak. The existence of a doubled segment, a hamza or a weak segment in the word can result in different phonological changes which lead it from one base form to a derived form. The author adopts an original model which takes into consideration the succession of different segments occurring in one word, and in some cases, in two words following each other. With its numerous references, this comprehensive work is likely to stimulate further research and is an invaluable resource for intermediate and advanced students of Arabic and for anyone interested in the Arabic language and linguistics.

    An in-depth linguistic work!!

    This book places special emphasis on the irregular verbs and nouns and on the phonological changes which occur in the Arabic language.
    The chapters of the irregular verbs are those of the doubled verb, the hamzated verb, the verb with 1st, 2nd or 3rd weak radical and the verb with two weak radicals. Concentrating on them, Akesson presents and analyses all the various imaginable sequences which constitute a part of their formations.
    The chapters of the phonological changes are those of the assimilation, the changes due to the hamza, the unsoundness due to the weak segment and the substitution. Here, Akesson discusses when these phonological changes occur and when they do not. She presents as well and analyzes many different sequences in detail.
    The index in the beginning of the book is very detailed and will help the reader to find the subject that he/she wishes to delve into.
    This is a very scientific and well researched book. It is filled with linguistic terminology and contains references to many other important works, ancient as well as new.
    All in all, it is a very useful book and an eye opener into the intricacies that occur in the complex Arabic language.
