Title: The Phonotactics of Sudanese Colloquial Arabic
Author: Gurshab, Asmaa Muhamed Othman
Abstract: The main objective of this study centers around defining the Sound Patterns (Phonotactics) of Sudanese Colloquial Arabic, and identifying the basic phonemes and the phonotactic rules that govern their combination in the dialect. The study being of mainly quantitative nature, it adopts a descriptive analytical approach. Sudanese Colloquial Arabic speakers centralize at the Middle of Sudan. Consequently, the population of the study consists of the native speakers of Middle Sudan. The sample of the study consists of forty informants of native speakers, who were born and brought up at the dialect region, central Sudan. Results of the study ascertain twenty-five consonants and five short vowels + five long vowels. Not all the consonants accept clustering with each other. The study presents some suggestions for future studies. The most important is: consideration should be regarded for carrying out descriptive studies to all other levels of the dialect, morphology, syntax and semantics.
