I just bought the new readers. They look great and the stories will be something different from my other books and I can’t wait to start on the first one.
I am just wondering whether later on there will be a glossary available perhaps for a few of them, similar to the glossary for Mido. Although there is an English translation on each page, it is not the same as a glossary. I really appreciated the one for Mido. It helped me a lot.
No plans at present for glossaries, I’m afraid. That said, I am compiling a learner’s dictionary of Egyptian Arabic and I’ll do my best to include all of the vocabulary that appears in the readers and other Lingualism books in the dictionary.
Hello, I am really looking forward to the beginner Egyptian Dictionary, I have been using the Levantine one with the Anki cards and example sentences and it is really great, so I really am wishing you all the best in producing the Egyptian version. You guys Rock!
Late to the party, I know, but there is something called “Lughatuna” that enables you to search dictionaries in الفصحىٰ as well as Egyptian/Levantine/Maghrebi. The site is ~5 years old, so due to linguistic patterns and changes as words fall into/out of prominence, the information may not be as up to date as what you are hoping, but it couldn’t hurt to check it out.
It does require that you enter key words to search, so it’s not a glossary in the sense that you’re probably looking for, but every little bit helps I’m sure.
