"The book is designed for Arabic-speaking students of English and English-speaking students of Arabic...attention is given to subtle differences between Arabic and English in segmental (vowels and consonants) and suprasegmental (clusters, stress, rhythm and intonation) domains, both of which are treated and taught holistically as systems, then identified, described, and taught as natural categories of sounds (subsystems) as well as individual sounds..."--BOOK JACKET.
