Like many languages the Somali language has borrowed words from the Arabic language. Arabic loan verbs in Somali have followed three of the patterns identified by linguists: 1-Verbs have been imported from Arabic and adapted to the conjugation groups for spelling and pronunciation. 2- There are composite Arabic loan verbs made up of an Arabic noun and a Somali verb. Since it is the Arabic noun that made the use of the Somali verb possible ( i.e. partial substation), this book calls this type of verb an Arabic loan verb. 3- Somalis have coined Arabic loan verbs such as bismillee (to taste something –from bismillah, meaning ‘in the name of Allah’). This books contains 300 Arabic commonly used loan verbs in Somali in sentences and information on conjugation group of a each loan verb; specific tense usages; how different prepositions affect the meaning of the verb in a sentence; verbal nouns and variant spellings of verbs.
