Arabic as a Second Language III
About this course
In this course, students will move to intermediate grammar and morphology concepts. Grammar is focused primarily on the mansūbāt, including different mafā’īl, the exception, circumstantial qualifier (hāl), specifier (tamyīz), and the vocative (nidā’). Morphology requires students to gain mastery of the commonly known meanings associated with the derived verb forms, alongside key examples highlighting the spectrum of meaning. These concepts are then reinforced through text analysis (selections from Qisas al-Nabiyeen), listening (khutba clips), and Quran analysis (first half of Sūrat al-Shu’ara).(4 credit hours)
