Bags, Liquorice and Traditional Cereal Products: Three Texts in the Arabic Dialect of the Harran-Urfa Region of Southeastern Turkey

The three texts presented in this article were recorded in the Turkish city of Şanlıurfa and reflect an Arabic minority variety that belongs to the socalled Shawi dialects. Due to its isolation from other Arabic dialects, this variety has retained many features typical of the Bedouin-type dialects of the Syrian Desert and North Arabia (e.g. the consistent use of the dialectal tanwīn). Text 1 explains the different kinds of bags that are used for wheat, cotton, etc. Text 2 is about the production of a liquorice drink which is especially popular during Ramadan. Text 3 is a rather long description of how, in former times, the women of the region prepared various kinds of crushed wheat (bulgur) and how traditional bread is baked.
