Arabic for Nerds 2
A Grammar Compendium – 450 Questions about Arabic Grammar.
ARABIC FOR NERDS 2 will improve your understanding of written Arabic texts dramatically. It helps you to achieve your final goal: the superior level (C2).
ARABIC FOR NERDS 2 is a grammar compendium. It gives you all the tools that you need to properly analyze any Arabic sentence – no matter if it is taken from a children’s book or the Holy Qur’an.
This is not another boring grammar book. ARABIC FOR NERDS 2 will teach you in an entertaining way how to dissect a sentence, how to identify the function of letters, words, and syntax – in short: the I’rab (إِعْراب).
Imagine pushing entire sentences into an MRI machine. After we have examined the structure, we put single words under a microscope. Eventually we will know how sentences work or why they don’t work.
This book is thoughtfully structured to guide you through
- the jungle of case endings
- playing with word order
- understanding fine points of Classical and Modern Standard Arabic,
- and how to avoid common mistakes.
Every Arabic sentence is fully vowelled (Tashkeel) and translated into English.
It is specifically intended for advanced learners.
