I have found all the other books in this series (English Grammar for Student of [language]) to tremendously useful. For reasons that the book does not to make clear, the authors of this edition chose to make it useless to any actual students of Arabic by **excluding all Arabic script** form the book.

If you don't have the letters down, you can't do much with Arabic. Everything will be easier once you can (mostly) disregard the latin transliterations (they are mainly useful for unusual vowel combinations).

This misunderstanding of how early one needs to learn the script is odd. If one is interested in getting past a phrase book level of competency, one learns the alphabet while acquiring the first hundred words of vocabulary in the first few weeks of a very casually paced course—some while before grammar would be relevant.

If you want to learn the script so you can read useful books on this topic, the easiest places to start is an excellent and concise book on the topic by Nicholas Awde and Putros Samano "The Arabic Alphabet: How to Read & Write It"
https://www.amazon.com/Arabic-Alphabet-How-Read-Write/dp/0818404302

In ascending order of complexity, my 2nd choice, with accompanying discs: "Alif Baa: Introduction to Arabic Letters and Sounds [With DVD]" https://www.amazon.com/Alif-Baa-Introduction-Arabic-Letters/dp/1589016327 (often used for 1st semester university courses)

3rd choice, the real deal from German linguists "Standard Arabic: An Elementary-Intermediate Course" : https://www.amazon.com/Standard-Arabic-Elementary-Intermediate-Eckehard-Schulz/dp/0521774659/ and you'll want the audio discs as well. Suitable for a rigorous first year university course—this moves at a faster pace, dropping nearly all latin script by the mid point.

I'm hoping they revise this book to be more useful—I really like this series and English Grammar for Students of French really helped me with that language so many years ago..

On the whole, this is a terrific book for intermediate students of arabic grammer. It covers those obtuse topics like gerunds, infinitives, etc. It is unbelievable, however, that the author did not write the arabic examples in arabic script. For example, "Whose books are these?" is translated "li-man hadhihi -lkutub-u?" The reader really needs to translate the translation! Hopefully there will be a second edition soon that goes directly from English to arabic. It would be worth waiting for.

I bought this as a gift for my girlfriend who studies Arabic after I bought the German version for myself. She has found it extremely useful and all of the information is relevant to her studies. However, we were both very disappointed that the examples were not also written in an Arabic script besides the transliterated ones. This just causes confusion and it's almost shocking that a book for students of Arabic doesn't include any actual Arabic writing. However, the information is still very good and definitely a good value.

Anyone learning Arabic grammar should but this book. Breaks everything down simply and easily in words I understand. Great supplement to any Arabic grammar class or for someone studying arabic grammar on their own.

The book is good however it would be more helpful if the Arabic names of the grammatical topics would have been provided in Arabic as well.

It is perhaps not fair of me to rate this a 2 when I haven't examined the book cover to cover. The simple fact is that I can't get into this book. How can you have a book which purports to teach you something important about the Arabic language when there is not a single word in the whole book in Arabic!! I left transliteration behind several years ago and now it confuses me to look at it; I'm sure it uses a different area of the brain than the Arabic symbols. You decide about this book. I will likely offer it for sale.
