Title:Etymological itineraries in second language phonology-HANDOUT
Authors:Youssef A. Haddad
Comment:Presented in the Second Language Research Forum (SLRF) 2005 at Teachers College, Columbia University
Abstract:This paper shows that students who learn Modern Standard Arabic before a dialect take 'an etymological trip' in learning the phonology of the dialect in question. The paper also discusses instructional implications related to the teaching of foreign languages in general and Arabic in particular, arguing that learners should be exposed to dialects early on.
