I Also Recommend:
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.
