Description

The Big Fat Book of Egyptian Arabic Verbs contains conjugation tables for 264 of the most common verbs used by Egyptians in their everyday speech. Over 1,400 example sentences are provided to show the verbs in context.

The tables show over 70 forms of each verb, for all persons, numbers, tenses, negative, imperative, participles, and verbal nouns.

Each detailed conjugation table takes up a full page and is followed by a page with several example sentences demonstrating the verb in various contexts. All of the examples were written by a native speaker from Cairo and then translated into English. Care was given to provide a variety of forms for each verb (different persons, numbers, tenses, negative forms, etc.) in the examples. Following these are notes shedding more light on the verb’s meaning and usage.

All of the Arabic in the book appears in both Arabic script and its phonemic transcription. The Arabic is written with tashkeel (voweling) so that each word’s pronunciation is clear. The phonemic transcription provides an even more accurate representation of the sounds of ECA, which cannot always be represented by the Arabic script. It can also be helpful for learners who are not yet completely comfortable with Arabic script.

  1. Emil

    The book is a wonderfuI addition to one’s Egyptian Arabic library. The complete conjugation of each verb with the noun form of the verb plus the examples of use are outstanding for a colloquial dialect. The audio files are a must and an excellant creation by the author to fully grasp the correct pronunciation. By the way, I bought the hardcopy version from Amazon.com.

    This book is extremely useful especially when combined with the Anki Flash Cards, it really helped me to improve my Arabic

    I was looking forward for a book of verbs’ conjugations with trasliteration , tashkeel and arabic all in one. Just started using it but the structure is very friendly.

    I have purchased many of lingualisms materials(and written similar reviews to this one). Honestly, they are easily the best purchases I have made in my Arabic learning journey. The audio is high quality. However the audio is also the reason I only gave this product 4/5 stars. I do appreciate the audio for the sample sentences, but I do feel that many of the audio tracks are a bit too fast, even by native standards. Not everyone who lives in Egypt or speaks Arabic, talks at that speed.

    The purchase of the book is a very good investment. Learning Arabic and using verbs as a starting point once I understood the script has been extremely helpful in improving my ability to speak. The layout is clear and easy to follow. The notes for each verb are invaluable.
