Course aims
Enable the students to understand the historical development of the Arabic language; to make it possible for the students to compare MSA with Classical Arabic.
Brief description of the course
The course is based on Modern Standard Arabic (MSA). The course begins with learning the arabic script – the consonant system and the diacritical marks. In grammar the topics discussed will be: grammatical gender in nominals, adjectives and verbs; strong verb and the weak verb (assimilated, hollow, defective verbs); the moods indicative, subjunctive, jussive); nominal and verbal sentences; the cases – nominative, accusative, genitive; relative clauses; inna caluses. Shorter texts will be read independently and later discussed and checked during the lectures. The same system will be used with composing dialogues.
Learning outcomes in the course
Upon completing the course the student:
- has knowledge of the structure of the Arabic language;
- has ability to employ the grammar learnt during the lectures in writing and to prepare dialogues on everyday topics.
