Ibrahim (PhD, Georgetown U.) presents the results of her research into whether Modern Standard Arabic is undergoing language drift in different areas of the Arabic world. She tested Moroccan, Lebanese, and Egyptian readers of Arabic in terms of their ability to understand lexical and syntactical variation in newspapers of other countries (Al-Hayaat of Lebanon, Al-`Anbaa' of Morocco, and Al-Ahram of Egypt). She also addresses the implications of her findings for language planning in the Arabic world. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
