Arabic language long history

Arabic language history

Arabic language history is very old.

Intro

The language of Allah and Muhammad is spoken by over 200 million people in 28 countries from Africa to the Middle East. Muslims in the world revere Arabic as the language of the Holy Qur’an. The Holy Qur’an has preserved Arabic in its purest form in the eyes of Muslims, describing itself as a “clear Arabic book”. Modern Standard Arabic (MSA) is the official language throughout the Arab world, and, in its written form, it is relatively consistent across national boundaries.

MSA is used in official documents, in educational settings, and for communication between Arabs of different nationalities. However, the spoken forms of Arabic vary widely, and each Arab country has its own dialect. Dialects are spoken in most informal settings, such as at home, with friends, or while shopping. Of all spoken dialects, Egyptian Arabic is the most widely understood, due primarily to Egypt’s role as the major producer of movies and TV programmes in the Arab world.

Roots of the Arabic language

Arabic is descended from a language known in the literature as Proto-Semitic. This relationship places Arabic firmly in the Afro-Asiatic group of world languages. Going further into the relationship between Arabic and the other Semitic languages, Modern Arabic is considered to be part of the Arabo-Canaanite sub-branch of the central group of the Western Semitic languages.

Modern Arabic Disglossia

Arabic language history is very old.

Modern Arabic is an uncommon language because it is characterised by what is called diglossia. This means that modern Arabic is really almost two languages: Modern Standard Arabic and colloquial Arabic. Modern Standard Arabic is used in reading, writing, and high register speech. It is descended from the Classical language of the Qur’an and, in the view of almost all Arabs, is the “pure” Arabic. However, Modern Standard Arabic is a learned language. It is no one’s mother tongue. In fact, all Arabs grow up learning the second or colloquial language.

Arab colloquial dialects are generally only spoken languages. Arabs use the colloquial language in all their daily interactions, but, when they encounter a language situation calling for greater formality, Modern Standard Arabic is the medium of choice.
