Synopsis: We may say that civilization is the sum of ways of living built up by a group of human beings and transmitted from one generation to another. Wec may therefore qualify today's Egyptian civilization as being a mixture of civilisations that grew from the time of the Pharaohs till the present "Western Era". This book contains some examples from a vast array of the Egyptian civilisation through quotations that are used in the daily lifeone way or another. Now, fearing that my heritage could one day, become forgotten as it happened with the poor Aboriginal Indians, the author told himself to do what should be done and not to wait for a stranger to do what he must to do, when the oriental culture is threatened to vanishlike many other vanquished cultures in the land of the emigrant. The Egyptian Culture in Spoken Language is a celebration of Egyptian culture resources expressed in music, poetry and folklore, as well asits religions.These spicyexpressionswhich are often humorous, are part of the daily Egyptian languageinstinctively inserted to either justify an action, or to describe a scene, or a metaphor. It is obvious that the authorm intended to mirror the soul of the Egyptian culture and he trulysucceeded in that regard in combining the whimsical with the profound. All these expressions are written in Arabic, in English and in French - translated literally and figuratively and organized in 76 topics such as : - Agressiveness, Assertiveness and fierceness - Animals and insects - Audacity and Challenge, The task and the responsibility - Bad Company - Betrayal - Birds - (Human) Body - Carelessness - Cats - Charity - Concealer and liar - Conclusion - Construction(Material of) - Death - Despair and disappointment - Destiny, divinity and mystery of life - Dogs - Donkey - Eating - Education, Civility, Moral, Values and Wisdom - Enmity and Love - Community help - Excuses - Eyes and temptation - Family - Faithfulness, Prayer and Gratefulness - Fear and stinginess - Friendship and neighborhood - Folklore - Food - Forgiveness - Goha - Greediness - Greeting and ethics - Habit - Health - Humility, Humbleness, Mercy, Saxrifice and true love - Hypocrisy and Envy - Ignorance - Intention, Promise, Doubt, Justice and forgiveness - Kids, Transparency and innocence - Laziness - Egyptian leaders - Leisure, Songs and Partying - Loyalty - Money, earning and wealth - Newly wed and wedding - Opportunism - Patience - Perseverence - Positivity and negativity, Hope and freedom, the willand the Self-Esteem - Pretending - Pride, arrogance and AL MUTANABBY - Precaution - Rashness - Action m- reaction and paradox - Religion - Reservedness, discretion and cowardice - Roots, patriotism and false pride - Roses - Shame - Shrewdness and delicacy - Splendor - Stuborness - Tact - Talks and words - Theft - Time - Trouble and troublemakers - Uselesssness - Warning - Literal expressions - One-Word expressions - Just for laugh iorganized in 76 topics n order to facilitate the research of a specific subject. It could be said that The Egyptian Culture in Spoken Languageis encyclopedic in its scope and should delight the reader. The author likes to offer to his children and his children's children a fragment of that oriental treasure called civilization as a way to be transmited from one generation to another To do so, the author dedicates the HERITAGE to his daughter Patricia and his two sons Steve and Karl, as well as to all the future generations in order to keep the torch of the Egyptian Culture, that the author learned, tasted and loved will be kept alive foever on the land of Diaspora. -
