Subject:   Spoken Modern Standard Arabic
 
What kinds of differences are there in Modern Standard Arabic as
spoken across the Arab world? I am aware of the scope of
differences between regional vernaculars; I am interested here in
the acrolect.
 
I am more concerned with secular contexts than with religious
ones. I am interested in both written and (especially) spoken
variation, in such environments as newscasts and lectures. If MSA
is used also in more impromptu contexts, such as perhaps panel
discussions, I would be quite interested in them as well.
 
I would appreciate both direct information and pointers to printed
or Web sources. If there is interest, I will summarize responses
for the list.

Dear linguists,
I'm currently working on my master thesis devoted to verbal aspects of
missionary endeavors, especially those of Jehovah's Witnesses. Therefore
I would highly appreciate any reference concerning this matter.
Best regards,
Monika Sterczewska

Does anyone know of a bibliography for Hebrew linguistics?
I would appreciate knowing of it or even of one book.
Thank you.
