Intro to Quranic Linguistics
Level 2: Essentials of Arabic Grammar
Through direct application of hundreds of Quranic verses, Level 2, Essentials of Arabic Grammar, looks at the details of the theory of Arabic grammar (theoretical linguistics) by analyzing major types of nominatives (المرفوعات), accusatives (المنصوبات), genitives (المجرورات), jussives (المجزومات), sentences (الجمل), and quasi-sentences (شبه الجملة). Challenging topics such as conditionals (الشرط), numbers, and inflection of weak lettered nouns and verbs are also explained in detail. Moreover, frequently appearing particles in the Quran and Arabic language along with their various types have been listed in the Quick Reference Guide. The book has been designed to be a “one-stop shopping” place for Arabic grammar. It contains useful charts and tables necessary for syntactic analysis. In this level, the student is expected to make the transition into an Arabic-only environment. Thus, translation has been kept to a minimum.
