A Short Reference Grammar of Iraqi Arabic available in Paperback
The only reference grammar of Iraqi Arabic, as spoken by educated Muslims in Baghdad. Written for beginners as well as Arabic speakers wanting to learn this dialect, it covers the phonology, morphology (word formation of nouns, verbs, pronouns, adjectives, and numerals, achieved by adding prefixes and suffixes to roots), and syntax. That is to say, it teaches the readers how to make the sounds, form words, and construct sentences.
All the Arabic is transcribed--it does not use Arabic script.
