Title: Beyond Lexical Variation in Modern Standard Arabic: Egypt, Lebanon and Morocco
Written By: Zeinab M.A. Ibrahim

Beyond Lexical Variation in Modern Standard Arabic presents several aspects
concerning Modern Standard Arabic. It analyzes the different forms of
lexical variation, and the causes for these variations. This starting point
led to many other vital issues related to the present state of the Arabic
Language such as language planning, native speakers' identity and fears and
most importantly the relationship between the different Arabic varieties:
Classical, Modern Standard, and dialects. The book analyzes lexical
variation comprehensively and provides deep insights on the present state
of the language with some speculations on its future.
