A very poorly written book!
18 July 2011 - Published on Amazon.com
A very poorly written listing of sound changes in the history of Old Arabic and in Quranic readings. It basically translates the traditional descriptions of the Arab grammarians in very poor English and confusing non-standard linguistic terminology. I'm shocked that a book of this quality can be published at all. Not recommended for anyone.
An inspiring and comprehensive book!

This is a book for those who have a certain knowledge about Arabic linguistics and grammar. It focuses on the intricate subject of Arabic phonology and takes up the changes that can affect a word. Examples are qawala that becomes qaala "he said" by change of the defective letter, the waw into an alif, and madada that becomes madda "he stretched" by assimilation of both the dals. The main topics treated in this work are those cited by the famous grammarian Ibn Jinni (d. 1002) which are: the assimilation, the changes due to the hamza and to the weak letter, the substitution, the elision, the addition and the transposition of vowels and letters. The references are to both Ancient and modern linguists and I found them to be very inspiring for further research in the field.
I can highly recommend this book.
