One of the unique features of Arabic morphology is its underlying character of tying form to function. Being true to its nature as a plain and straightforward language, Arabic verbs can be easily categorized and grouped together, by paying attention to its form and pattern. This pattern will, in turn, assist the leaner in grasping the general meaning of the verb. Tying form to function - that is what الأوزان الصرفية are all about! Once the form, or pattern, of a group of words has been recognized by a foreign learner of Arabic, they will begin to grasp the meaning that is represented by that form and understand the meaning of that pattern which is common to all words that share that same pattern. The lessons and exercises which have been designed for this entry-level module introduce students to the meanings of certain words, especially VERBS, through form recognition.
