PREFACE

Modern Written Arabic, Volume III, is based on materials which have been used at the Foreign Service Institute Arabic Language and Area School in Beirut and Tunis for a number of years to help members of the U. S. Foreign Service learn to read the modern Arabic press. A. Nashat Naja~ a member of the teaching staff of the School in both its locations~ planned and carried out the work in its present form, building on the second volume. In 1974 he began a complete re-write of the materials then in use. He continued the work through the difficult 1974-1975 period in Beirut~ subsequently completing it at the new location in Tunis. Mr. Naja carried out his work under three school directors: James A. Snow, Harlie L. Smith, Jr., and Margaret K. Omar. Camera copy for this volume was prepared in Washington where the work was coordinated by Marianne L. Adams, the FSI Publications Officer~ who consulted with Dr. Snow and worked with Naguib Guirgis who typed the Arabic. Proofreading was done by Naim Owais with assistance from Grace Shahid, Souria H. Haddad~ and Mohamed Achalaoune, all of the FSI Washington Arabic staff. In addition~ Mr. Owais compiled the materials for the glossary. Maryko Deemer typed the English glosses. Dr. Smith and Dr. Snow contributed final editorial suggestions and checking.

INTRODUCTION This third and final volume of Modern Written Arabic (MWA) builds on the previous two volumes and completes a set of materials designed to teach members of the Foreign Service to read the modern Arabic press. Continuing the purposes noted in the Introductions to volumes I and II, this volume is intended to provide recognitional mastery of many additional vocabulary items and more extensive exposure to complex morphological and syntactic patterns as well as to a wide range of sophisticated Arabic prose styles. The format of Volume III essentially follows the format of Volume II. Each lesson presents several selections based on Arabic newspaper materials followed immediately by a word list. This list draws the student's attention to new idioms and expressions as well as vocabulary items. It isolates proper names and easily recognizable words which the student may not have seen before. It also presents derivations of common root forms to help the student decipher meanings using knowledge already gained. Grammatical references are omitted in this volume. It is assumed that students can already read live newspaper materials as a result of Volume II and that Volume III will lead them to handle increasingly sophisticated prose with greater independence.
