UNIVERSITY ARABIC GRAMMAR TEXTBOOKS APPLCATION VS. EXPECTATION

Abstract

Examining the Arabic grammar textbooks at the university level, one can safely find out that these grammars are completely based on all that the pioneers wrote a long time ago. This means that the resource books in question were originally written for their own generations who were with levels of perception and comprehension totally different from present day people. This is on the one hand. On the other hand,modern linguists have undoubtedly done their best to simplify Arabic grammar for their learners because they have already realized that what is actually taught to the university students is far from what is expected. That is why there is a crying need for developing new grammar textbooks that will help the learners improve their levels and better their knowledge as far as linguistics and grammar are concerned. The present study aims to develop new Arabic grammar textbooks that satisfy the needs of the students and that match with their expectations. Lt is after planning for writing the future University grmmar textbook.
