Abstract

This study aims at providing a descriptive characterization of the ten Arabic verb forms used by Arabic language learners from other languages in The Middlebury-Jordan program, in order to identify the learners’ most commonly used verb forms, and to apprehend the feasibility of using The Arabic verb measuring chart in providing the verb forms for non-Arabic speakers. In the light of the error analysis theory, the study aimed at analyzing the errors learners make in choosing the right verb forms, employing and analyzing them on the syntactic structural level, as well as revealing their sources. The study concluded that there is a discrepancy in the presence of the Arabic verb forms in the linguistic use. Therefore, it becomes necessary to provide the ten Arabic verb forms based on their commonality, in addition to presenting the grammatical and structural rules using a functional contextual methodology based on commonness, gradation and integration, which will ultimately enable the learners to practice the language and avoid making errors in speaking and writing.
