  Tour of Nouns Section

A Note on Sources

We are greatly indebted to the work of Ron Buckley and his excellent grammar of Arabic for the organization of and examples used in this section on Nouns in MSA. Few other resources provide the detailed classification Buckley provides, replete with examples of each declension type. Most grammars will cover little more than triptote and diptote nouns for the singular. See Buckley, Ronald Modern Literary Arabic: a Reference Grammar, Lebanon: Librarie du Liban, 2004.
