Colloquial Arabic

Colloquial Arabic

The Arabic language developed upon the backdrop of a land that bridged continents, seas and vast ranges of mountains and desert in what can be commonly referred to as the ‘Arab World.’ Stretching from the Atlantic Ocean through the Western city of Rabat, to the Indian Ocean through the Eastern coastal city of Muscat and pocketed by three seas; the Mediterranean, the Red Sea and the Persian Gulf, lies the Arab World. Between these beautiful seas, over 300 million people call the Arab World home and 22 countries identify around the loosely shared Arab identity.

Linguistically, Modern Standard Arabic connects all these countries and peoples together as the commonly accepted core of the Arabic Written language. But with such diverse and expansive lands, shown most evidently by complexities and charm of Arab history, it is no wonder that the development and character of each of these states would be highly distinctive in nature. This permitted the language to evolve into its own reflection of the individual countries values and culture. Alongside the almost universally spoken Modern Standard Arabic, the Arab world also contains a plethora of colloquial local dialects that grew within their own particular context.
