Egyptian Arabic-English/English-Egyptian Arabic Dictionary & Phrasebook by Mahmoud Gaafar, Jane Wightwick

Egypt is the most populous Arab country, and Egyptian Arabic is the language that all Egyptians speak. This user-friendly reference includes the essential words, phrases and expressions a visitor would need to experience and enjoy Egypt to the fullest. Egyptian Arabic is also widely understood in other Arab countries, making this book a very useful communication tool for visitors to these countries as well. The two-way dictionary section is extensive, and contains a wealth of words and phrases commonly used by Egyptians as they go about their daily lives, and beyond. The phrasebook section has insightful information about the Egyptian people, their customs, traditions and way of life. It covers topics such as meeting, visiting, socialising and celebrating with new Egyptian friends. Whether you are sightseeing, dining out with a client, or buying fresh produce from a local trader, you can count on this book to help you negotiate your way around Egypt. The guide includes more than 6,000 dictionary entries; easy-to-read phonetics (all entries include both original Arabic script and Romanised phonetics); and basic grammar and pronunciation guides.
