I just purchased this new book from the local bookstore and I was very impressed. Since it is a little expensive, I wanted to let others know that it is definitely worth the money.

Not only is it comprehensive at 708 pages, but the explanations are more than ample and written in very clear English and the sample sentences are provided both in Arabic script and well as a transliteration along with the English translation, making this grammar accessible to both beginning as well as advanced Arabic students.

Amazon currently lists it at $70, but I was able to purchase it at my local bookshop (Borders) for $58.00.

Keeping technical technology to a minimum, it provides a detailed yet accessible overview of Modern Standard Arabic in which the essential aspects of its phonology, morphology, and syntax can be readily looked up and understood..."
