The main objective of this course is to investigate areas of Arabic grammar from a modern linguistic point of view. The issues dealt with will include syntax and morphology. In broad terms, the areas investigated will include verb and noun morphology, and from a syntactic perspective, phrase and sentence structure. To this end, appropriate selections will be made from Clive Holes’ Modern Arabic Structures Functions and Varieties. It is possible that additional selections from Arabic texts will be introduced as a way of comparing modern and orthodox presentations of specific linguistic features. Based on the readings and class discussions, modern text chunks — media and/or modern literature — will be selected for the purpose of participants locating and examining actual manifestations of the areas under study. The bases for participant evaluation are attendance, discussions, periodic quizzes, midterm and final examinations.
