Dr Marogy is a bilingual Aramaic-Arabic speaker from Iraq. She gained a BA from the University of al-Mustansiriyya in Baghdad, a degree in Applied Linguistics from Mercator Hogeschool Ghent and a PhD in Oriental Languages and Cultures from the University of Ghent. Her doctoral thesis dealt with the Kitāb Sībawayhi and more specifically with Inversion, Definiteness and Case Assignment in Verbless Nominal Sentences in the Kitāb. She has extensive experience in teaching Arabic at university level and outside. She hopes that her rich background will help her become an active contributor to the intercultural dialogue between the East and the West.
