Of all Arabic colloquial dialects, the best work, and the most work, has probably been done on Egyptian Arabic. What has been accomplished in this field by Spitta, Willmore, S.Spiro, and others, will certainly not be superseded. This being so, it is incumbent on the newcomer to justify his entrance into that field, by indicating the special need which he is attempting to meet. That need in the present case can be summed up by the word presentation. It seemed to the writer that an efiort should be made to apply to Egyptian Arabic some of the modern methods now used in teaching living languages; that a book needed to be compiled which should have constantly in view the ensemble of teacher-andpupil, and the oral conversational work in which they are supposed to be engaged. This, then, is what I have steadily held in view in writing the present book, with what success remains to be seen. I can at least say that it is the result of practical experience as least as much as linguistic theory.
