Syrian Colloquial Arabic, a Functional Course (third edition) by Mary-Jane Liddicoat, Richard Lennane and Dr Iman Abdul Rahim A 450-page illustrated and fully indexed textbook, accompanied by 180+ minutes of authentic recorded conversations (MP3s), dealing with modern colloquial Arabic as it is spoken in Syria. Mesopotamian Arabic is one of the most unique dialects in the Middle East; it has the ability to leave many non-Iraqi's confused. The diverse dialects spoken across the country borrow vocabulary and sounds from ancient languages such as Persian, Turkish, Aramaic, and Akkadian. Both the Iraqi-English and English-Iraqi halves are represented by a single XML structure, comprising LexicalEntry elements (Iraqi and English headwords). These in turn contain Sense and SenseExample elements (definitions and example phrases), with both Arabic script and IPA orthographies presented in parallel for Iraqi words and phrases.
