The different phonological, morphological, and syntactic rules are presented and discussed holistically, combining both form and function, to achieve adequate knowledge of Arabic grammar. While the assigned textbook includes both English and Arabic grammatical terms, the course relies mainly on Arabic terms as they were used by traditional Arab grammarians. Illustrative examples and readings are taken from Modern Standard and Classical texts.
