9781480257061: Communication Among Arabic Varieties: Comprehension Testing in the Yemen Arab Republic

Arabic, spoken in many countries, boasts hundreds of millions of speakers ... however, not everyone speaks the same dialect. In fact, spoken varieties differ from one Arab country to another, and even from one region to another within the same country. In addition, there exists a prestigious literary form of Arabic which is the only variety sanctioned for education. This vast continuum of dialects, all referred to as Arabic, often results in communication problems. Peter took on the challenge of investigating how well speakers of rural Yemeni Arabic varieties understand three varieties other than their own. The research and results of his MA thesis, originally submitted to the University of Texas in Arlington in 1988, are reprinted in this book.

About the Author:

Peter Twele (MA in Linguistics) first moved to the Middle East in 1984, where he resided and traveled extensively for over 11 years. After studying Arabic for a number of years, he then worked and did research through a number of institutions in the Middle East, including the Phonetics Research Center at the University of Jordan, the American Center of Oriental Research, the American Institute for Yemeni Studies, and the Yemen Centre for Research and Studies. He has also taught in the Linguistics programs at both Trinity Western University in Langley, BC, and at the University of Texas in Arlington. To this day he continues with his desire to build bridges of understanding between the West and the Middle East ... mostly by trying to help Westerners understand and appreciate Middle East cultures.
