In this work, the author's purpose is to analyse the difficulties encountered by speakers of American English in attempting to master the pronunciation of Egyptian Arabic. This study deals with the segmental phonemes only, with some reference to stress and occasionally to intonation. No detailed study of intonation is attempted. Some foxing along edges of wrappers. Upper front corner bumped, thus slightly affecting pages throughout. Wrappers in overall good- to good, interior in good to good+ condition. *Dr. Herbert Harry Paper (1925-2012) was Professor Emeritus of Linguistics and near Eastern Languages, and the Editor of the Hebrew Union College Annual, HUC-JIR/Cincinnati. He received a doctorate from the University of Chicago. Dr. Paper taught at the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor, and joined HUC-JIR as the Dean of Graduate Studies. His specialties were Persian studies, concentrating on the history of the Persian language and on the ancient languages of Iran, and Yiddish literature. (Inventory #: 34619)
