There are of course many aids to the study of colloquial Arabic, especially the dialect of Egypt. I mention here only the excellent publications of Spitta Bey, Hartmann and Vollers, to say nothing of the numerous conversational guides. If I have increased the number of works on the subject by this present grammar, I have done so with the object of putting into the hands of the student who is not a philologist, who knows neither classical Arabic nor one of its modern dialects, a book which, in contrast to most works that have as yet appeared on the subject, does not presume any previous knowledge on the part of the student, and which removes, wherever possible, the difficulties that must arise in the study of an idiom so very different from that of the IndoEuropean languages.
