Format: Hardcover
The book is well written, but the major drawback is that the entire book uses Latin script without any arabic script what so ever. I could not find even a key to which alphabet was being referred to in the transliterated arabic words.

If someone is well versed in the type of transliteration of arabic into latin, then this book will be useful. However I would only expect an intermediate arabic student to want to know the theories of Arabic morphology, it is a retrograde step not having Arabic script for the Arabic words.

HASH(0x922169cc) out of 5 stars A great tool for delving into the intricate subject of Arabic morphology!! 29 July 2010
By D. Lynn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This guide to Arabic morphology provides a study of the major morphological structures of the seven classes of verbs and their nominal and verbal derivatives. It is very well organized and contains relevant paradigms and interesting data and theories, which open the door to many important ancient and modern linguistic works.
There are indices at the last pages of the work that guide you to the numerous topics that have been discussed and to the names of the important linguists, dialects, tribes, koranic souras and poetical verses that have been referred to.
All together this is a great tool for delving into the intricate subject of Arabic morphology and I can highly recommend it.
HASH(0x91fe6e34) out of 5 stars Needs Transliteration Table 15 May 2016
By Yamani - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book does not use any Arabic script. It would be helpful to identify the system of transliteration used and to include a table of transliteration mapping Arabic alphabet to the symbols used in the book. It makes for difficult reading especially for those familiar with Arabic script.
