Abstract:

A Dictionary of Syrian Arabic provides Syrian terms for the language spoken
in everyday life by Muslims primarily in Damascus, but understandable
throughout Syria as well as in the broader linguistic areas of present-day
Lebanon, Jordan, and among the Palestinians and the Arabic-speaking
population of Israel. Entries include examples, idioms, and common phrases
to illustrate usage. The Arabic terms are presented in transcription. It is
useful for students of Arabic, scholars wishing to train in the Syrian
dialect, and visitors and travelers to Syria and other nations where the
dialect is spoken. A thorough introduction outlines the sociolinguistic
situation in Syria and covers phonology, morphology, syntax, grammar, and
vocabulary. Alongside the other Arabic language-learning and reference
works published by Georgetown University Press, this dictionary is yet
another invaluable volume on spoken Arabic, belonging at the side of
travelers and scholars, and on the shelves of research and reference libraries.
