About The Book
To achieve a deep and coherent understanding of any language, it is of imperative importance that an individual grasps the fundamental and foundational rules along with working on increasing the vocabulary within that language. This volume covers the introduction of Arabic morphology (sarf), building from the basic level.
It introduces all the famous nineteen scales with their past tense, present/future tense, imperative, prohibitive, emphatic forms and much more. Furthermore, it builds onto the ‘small charts’ (sarf sagheer) for these words and also provides other words for practice.
The compilation also indicates to the ‘special meanings’ and nuances of each scale. Even though this volume does not delve into the ‘advanced variations’ of these nineteen scales, a small introduction to these ‘advance variations’ is mentioned within this volume. Finally, some words regarded difficult in the Holy Qur’an by Arabic morphology students have been mentioned and explained within this volume.
A study of the nineteen scales and the sarf sagheer are the primary objectives of this first volume.
In addition, the second part of this first volume enumerates and explores the distinct and nuanced effect produced by the variant scales, along with an addendum that breaks down each of the scales and discusses any rules specific to certain scales.
