about this item

Davey documents key phonological and morphosyntactic features of Coastal Dhofari Arabic (CDA), its local and temporal relations, and a basic lexicon, and provides a comprehensive sketch grammar of a previously ignored Arabic dialect. He cites that the radical overhaul of lifestyle, family, and community over one or two decades leaves the speakers of a language with little alternative but to relinquish that which no longer has cultural value, and language in particular suffers at an increasing rate. For many communities across Arabia, the pace of change has outrun the time required for communities to sustain their heritage. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
