Facts about Arabic

  • Arabic (العربية al-ʿarabiyyah or عربي/عربى ʿarabī) is a name applied to the languages which evolved from the Classical Arabic language of the 6th century AD. This includes the literary language (Modern Standard Arabic or Literary Arabic, used in most written documents as well as in formal spoken occasions, such as lectures and radio broadcasts) and the spoken Arabic varieties, spoken in a wide territory stretching across the Middle East and North Africa. Arabic is a Semitic language, closely related to Hebrew and the Neo-Aramaic languages. Many of the spoken varieties often called Colloquial Arabic, are mutually unintelligible dialects and some linguists consider them distinct languages. They are not typically written, although a certain amount of literature (particularly plays and poetry) exists in many of them. Modern Standard Arabic (MSA) or Literary Arabic is the official language of all Arab countries and is the only form of Arabic taught in schools at all stages.
