Tis mcans thc cxistcncc ol two lorms ol thc languagc, classical and colloquial, sidcbysidc with varying lcvcls ol dicrcnccs. Scvcral uropcan and nonuropcan languagcs sharc such charactcristics. Classical Arabic, thc languagc ol rcading and writing, is also callcd litcrary, writtcn, lormal, and Modcrn Standard Arabic (MSA). !t is thc samc languagc in all Arab countrics. !t is uscd in lormal situations: ncwspapcrs, magazincs, books, schools and univcrsitics, radio and T\, conlcrcncc discussions, lccturcs, and in most writtcn matcrials. Arabs havc to go to school to lcarn thc MSA lorm, and, thcrclorc, not cvcry Arab can rcad and writc. Colloquial Arabic, on thc othcr hand, is thc spokcn languagc ol cvcryday activitics at homc, at work, on thc strcct, and in social occasions. !t varics not only lrom onc Arab country to anothcr but also within thc samc country dcpcnding on cducation, sociocconomic lcvcl, and rcligion. Howcvcr, thcrc is in cach Arab country onc standard and prcdominant colloquial vcrnacular bascd on thc dialcct spokcn in thc capital city or a major commcrcial city. Tc dicrcnccs bctwccn MSA and colloquial Arabic arc basically phonological and morphological, whcrcas thc dicrcnccs bctwccn thc dialccts arc in pronunciation, cvcryday cxprcssions, and idiomatic phrascs. Tc problcm ol thc Arabic diglossia has always raiscd thc qucstion ol which lorms ol Arabicmodcrn standard, colloquial, or which dialcct ol thc colloquialis to bc lcarncd or to bc taught by cducational institutions. !t is not an casy choicc, but thcrc arc critcria and ways that hclp thc lcarncr ol Arabic to makc that choicc.Vc advisc thc bcginning studcnt and travclcr to conccntratc on studying and stick with a singlc lorm or dialcct until it is lcarncd lairly wcll. Tc lcarncr will thcn bc ablc to usc that knowlcdgc ol Arabic in adapting himscll or hcrscll (tonguc and cars) to anothcr dialcct. !t is salc to statc hcrc that an avcragc pcrson with rm control ol onc dialcct should bc ablc to communicatc with anothcr pcrson who spcaks a dicrcnt dialcct. Tc communication lcvcl would bc thc samc bctwccn a pcrson spcaking Amcrican nglish and anothcr spcaking 8ritish nglish. Tcrc arc thrcc major gcographical groups ol dialccts in modcrn !raq that can bc idcnticd in gcncral tcrms as northcrn, southcrn, and ccntral. Tc northcrn dialcct is ccntcrcd around thc city ol Mosul (thc largcst city in thc north), and thc southcrn dialcct is ccntcrcd around thc city ol 8asra (thc largcst city in thc south). Tc ccntral dialcct is spokcn in thc capital city ol 8aghdad and its surroundings.Although this book is titlcd Modern Iraqi rabic, thc tcxt prcscntcd is thc dialcct spokcn by !raqis who livc in 8aghdad. 8aghdad, as a grcat capital and mctropolitan ccntcr, ocrs a dialcct that is thc most widcly uscd and undcrstood throughout !raq. Tc modcrn !raqi Arabic introduccd in this book is spokcn by an avcragc, middlcclass 8aghdadi.xvi | Introductiona v v a N c v x v N + o v + n v n o o xTis tcxt is writtcn to scrvc thc communication nccds ol studcnts, travclcrs, and busincss pcoplc whosc objcctivc is to spcak rathcr than rcad or writc thc languagc. To achicvc that objcctivc, a translitcration systcm ol phonctic writing is uscd to cxprcss thc sounds ol !raqi Arabic. Tc sclcction ol thc transcription symbols is bascd on thc systcm uscd in thc Ency-clopedia of Islam, p. 7, by C. Glassc. Tc lcarncr should mastcr thcsc transcriptions bclorc procccding to lcarn thc structurc ol thc languagc. !n this rcviscd cdition Arabic script has bccn addcd, so thosc who can rcad and writc Arabic may bc ablc to lcarn thc dialcct ol !raq without abandoning thc Arabic writing. Tosc who arc lamiliar with thc writing convcntion ol Modcrn Standard Arabic will noticc ccrtain modications to thc script madc lor thc purposc ol cxprcssing ccrtain sounds or combinations ol sounds that arc lound only in colloquial Arabic. Lcsson ! ocrs thc rcadcr a dctailcd discussion ol consonants, vowcls, and othcr charactcristics ol !raqi phonctics, including a comprchcnsivc list ol pronunciation cxcrciscs on thc audio. Makc surc to listcn to thc audio lrcqucntly and practicc by rcpcating thc sounds. Tc tcxt is dcsigncd lor pcoplc who havc no prcvious knowlcdgc ol Arabic as wcll as thosc who havc alrcady studicd somc Arabic but wish to lcarn thc !raqi dialcct. !t is organizcd in a mcthod suitablc cithcr lor usc in thc classroom or lor scllstudy with thc hclp ol thc audio. Tc bcst way to lcarn a spokcn languagc is to hcar it spokcn and to practicc spcaking it. Tc csscntial lactors ol lcarning spokcn Arabic arc rcpctition, mcchanical cxcrciscs, and mcmorization, in addition to practicing with a partncr. Tis book contains twcnty lcssons bascd on cvcryday situations. Tc lcssons arc arrangcd in a storylikc lormat that lollows a woman namcd 8asma travcling lrom thc Unitcd Statcs to !raq and hcr activitics within thc country. 8cginning with lcsson 2, cach lcsson is dividcd into thc lollowing main parts:8asic ialoguc\ocabularyAdditional xprcssions (as nccdcd)Grammar and Rcmarks!dioms and Common PhrascsrillsCrcativc ialogucsBasic DialogueTc basic dialoguc is prcccdcd by a vcry bricl dcscription cxplaining thc lcsson subjcct mattcr, which always involvcs a lcmalc (8asma), a malc, and somctimcs morc pcoplc.

Tc hamza (), glottal stop, is a consonant and as such it appcars in thc bcginning (initial), middlc (mcdial), or cnd (nal) ol thc word. Howcvcr, in this tcxtbook, thc hamza is not rcndcrcd in thc initial position. Tis is donc lor two rcasons: to makc thc transcription writing systcm morc practical, and also bccausc nglish words bcginning with vowcls arc pronounccd with glottal stop, although it is not writtcn. !n Arabic, thcrc is no word that bcgins with a vowcl. Tc rcadcr, thcrclorc, must always assumc that thcrc is a hamza with cvcry initial vowcl. Vords with initial vowcls arc listcd undcr thc hcading () in thc glossary. 2. Tc consonant p, is a sound particular to !raqi Arabic. !t sccms to occur mostly in loanwords soopa, poskaart (heating sto.e and post card, rcspcctivcly). 1. Tc consonants ch, and k, : Tc sound ch is a nonclassicalArabic consonant. !n many cxamplcs this sound rcplaccs thc sound k as in chibiir lor kabiir (big), and chalib lor kalb (dog). Scc thcsc two hcadings in thc glossary. 4. Tc consonants g, and q, : Tc classical sound q is oltcn uscd in !raqi Arabic, although it is usually rcplaccd by thc sound g, such as giriib lor qariib (close), and gaal lor qaal (to say). Tc g also occurs in somc loanwords as geemar (cream) and glaas ( glass). . Tc consonants d, and z, : Tc classical sound d has almost complctcly disappcarcd and has lallcn togcthcr with thc sound z in !raqi Arabic, abyaz lor abyad (.hite), and khazz lor khadd (to shake). Howcvcr, wc havc rctaincd thc consonant d in thc book lor practical rcasons conncctcd with thc Arabic script. 6. Tc cmphatic l, : Tis sound is limitcd in numbcr and usc mainly in thc words that invokc thc namc ol God, alla. !t also occurs in cxamplcs that contain somc ncighboring cmphatic consonants such as t, s, and z, (sultaan, tall, zall ) (scc cxcrcisc !2).The Iraqi Vowels Arabic vowcls arc ol two typcs, long and short. Tc !raqi dialcct has vc long vowcls aa, ee, ii, oo, and uu, and lour short vowcls a, i, o, and u. !n thc cxamplcs givcn bclow thc nglish cquivalcnts arc only approximatc. Tc long vowcls arc simply thc lcngthcncd countcrpart ol thc short vowcls.

The Short Vowels (Audio) Vowel Equivalent Example a bct jamal (camel ) i hit sinn (tooth) u put kunt (I .as) o radio raadyo (radio) Notes on the Vowels !. Tc sound quality ol thc short vowcls arc acctcd by thc surrounding cmphatic consonants such as s, t, z, and l (scc cxcrciscs !, 1, 4, 6, 8, and !2). Tcy havc morc sound variations than thosc ol thc long vowcls, dcpcnding on thc surrounding consonants and thcir position in thc word. Tcy also havc lcss sonority than thc long vowcls. 2. Tc short vowcl a has a rangc ol sound qualitics dcpcnding on thc surrounding consonants (whcthcr cmphatic or simplc). For cxamplc, in thc middlc ol thc word it may havc thc sound e as in gct, a as in car, or u as in but. Howcvcr, its prccisc quality rarcly accts thc mcaning ol thc word. 1. Tc vowcls i and u at thc cnd ol thc word havc a sound likc that ol thcir long vowcl countcrparts ii and uu as in shuu (look, F) and shuufu (look, P).

Although o is a short vowcl it is traditionally writtcn with in Arabic script (MSA), sincc it appcars mostly in thc cnd ol loanwords, such as maayo . . Tc long vowcls ee and oo arc, in most cascs, rcgardcd as rccxcs ol thc classical Arabic diphthongs ay and aw as in zooj lor zawj (husband) and heel lor hayl (strength). Tcy appcar also in loanwords: sooda (soda), maatoor (motor), meez (table), and heel (cardamom). Tc long vowcl oo occurs in somc typcs ol thc wcak vcrb as in yoogaf (to stand) and yoosal (to arri.e). 6. Tc two vowcls ee and ii arc both cxprcsscd in Arabic script by thc vowcl .
