"Abdul-Raof has given us a useful textbook on rhetoric and comparative linguistics for non-natives learning Arabic as a foreign language. Moreover, he has offered a historical and pedagogic masterpiece, which will be of special significance for students and researchers in Arabic literature, particularly those interested in applying or appreciating the analytical tools of Arabic rhetorical schemata in regard to the oral and written modes of the Arabic literary experience and tradition." - Amidu Olalekan Sanni; Middle Eastern Literatures: incorporating Edebiyat, 13:1, 117-119 (2012).
