Bartolomeo Pirone, Guida allo studio dell'arabo. Un metodo semplice per entrare passo dopo passo nella lingua del ḍād, Bologna: Edizioni del Gruppo di Ricerca Arabo-Cristiana, 2021.
The book is the result of many years of teaching at the University of Naples "L'Orientale". As an expert guide for having taught the Arabic language to hundreds of students, the Author takes by the hand those who want to acquire the written and spoken Arabic language and, with the necessary patience for anyone wishing to acquire a language, leads the reader and explains all the elements, from the simplest to the most complex.
The book is a precious tool precisely for those who want to approach the "language of ḍād" (the letter that stands out in the cover image) and which, among the emphatic sounds of Arabic, is the one that is most peculiar to arabic speaking people; for this reason Arabic has been called by linguists "the language of ḍād".
