A Dictionary of Moroccan Arabic complements A Basic Course in Moroccan
Arabic (text and CDs) and A Short Reference Grammar of Moroccan Arabic. It
presents, in an impressive range, the core vocabulary of everyday life in
Morocco-from the kitchen to the mosque, from the hardware store to the
natural world of plants and animals. It contains myriad examples of usage,
including formulaic phrases and idiomatic expressions. Understandable
throughout the nation, it is based primarily on the standard dialect of
Moroccans from the cities of Fez, Rabat, and Casablanca. All Arabic
citations are in an English transcription, making it invaluable to
English-speaking non-Arabists, travelers, and tourists-as well as being an
important resource tool for students and scholars in the Arabic
language-learning field.

Linguistic Field(s): Lexicography
