A question (out of curiosity only) for speakers of languages with grammatical dual (eg. ):

If you do software () and the strings are divided into singular and plural forms, how do you solve the problem of the missing string for dual?

I'd like to practice by reading short articles, news and such. Possibly also watch news videos, but short text is my priority here.

But where should I head? Pretty much all I've heard of is Al Jazeera, but surely there are other news sites, too!

Doesn't need to be mainstream, and leaning left is a big plus actually. I have no country preferences, other than that they're genuinely from the Arabic world (so not BBC or any France stuff)

So drop me a link or two, if you like! :)

A while ago at another place someone linked to this site where you can download a great book to learn Arabic.

Great in the sense that it really drills down on the basics and makes the Arabic grammar look like a piece of cake. There's some weird humor among the text, but that's a small price to pay for such a good study book.

The book is aimed at people who have already studied Arabic but haven't got much sense of it so far. That's why its name is what it is.
