Abstract:
The present work is concerned with the influence of English grammar, syntax, idiom and style upon contemporary literary Arabic. Loan-words-which have been arabicized or directly adopted into Arabic have not been included in this study. The work is in two parts. Part I treats the historical background of the influence, the native attempts at resistance or adaptation, a historical survey of the standard Arabic (a definition of this is given later in this chapter), previous studies and observations in this field, and evaluation of the material used, which covers works (books) as well as the press. Biographical notes of the authors used in this work and their association with the patterns and examples quoted in Part II are included here. At the end of Part I there is a Questionnaire answered by three of the authors treated in this mark, namely Najib Mahfuz, Ahmed Zaki, and Jabra Ibrhim Jabri.
