Abstract

This paper is a descriptive account of the verbal and nominal forms of Najdi Arabic. NA is the dialect of the desert region of the Arabian Peninsula. This dialect is the least studied, among Arabic dialects, within modern linguistics. It is hypothesized that NA is the closest dialect, still spoken, to the Classical Arabic. Through studies like this we hope to be able to shed more light on more facts of Classical Arabic. More studies on so-called peninsular dialects in general will certainly unveil much of the alleged truth about the many generalizations made regarding all Arabic dialects.
