The Arabic Language: Its Amazing History and Features

  • Published on Apr 23, 2017
  • This video is all about the Arabic language, from its early origins on the Arabian peninsula, to its current status as the 5th most spoken language on Earth. I also examine a number of features of Arabic and analyze numerous examples.

    As a Arabic native speaker, I recommend always to learn arabic standard language more than a specific arabic accient, that's because it can be understood in all arab countries and it is the language of holy quran.
    كمتحدث اصلي للغه العربيه، انا انصح دائما بتعلم اللغه العربيه الفصحى اكثر من تعلم لهجه عربيه محدده، وذلك لان اللغه العربيه الفصحى يمكن فهمها في جميع الدول العربيه وهي لغة القران الكريم.

    First of all, kudos on the great video and for your excellent command of Arabic language.
    As for your question at the end of the video, learning MSA VS a local dialict, of course all depends on one's objectives and preferences.
    However, I can say that if you plan to live or spend a few summers enjoying Marrakech, Amman, or Cairo and you only need to learn a medium of communicating with people on the roads and markets, then learning a certain dialect should suffice. Especially since dialects are not literary systems and they really can be grasped by anyone who spends even a short time in any given Arab country and dialects usually tolerate huge errors and mistakes because after all, they are not languages, as evidenced by some subsaharan African workers speaking Libyan dialect or some South Asian working in the Arabian peninsula speaking Khaliji dialects and they seem to be perfectly being able to deliver a messange to a local.
    However, if you plan to learn Arabic as a language (properly speaking) as in to be able to brand yourself (I speak a language) for any purpose, whether professionally to reflect it on your resumé or for research purposes or any other reason that commands a proper grasp of a language, then learning a dialect is pretty much worthless; you can not tell your prospective employer or university admissions committee that you speak Arabic while in fact you speak a spoken dialect that has no official status and unable to be used in writing even a simple email.
    Here, learning MSA is almost certainly the correct choice. Because with MSA you will have a universal setting that will make you understood in all 26 countries plus you can understand official sources of information e.g. written such as internet articles-newspapers-books-ads, TV (news in particular) and even football games where commentary is becoming increasingly done in MSA !
    With regards to MSA vs Classic, again it depends on your objectives. Classic is certainly very beautiful and extremely eloquent. But for practical purposes, MSA is really sufficient to understand pretty much everything in classic Arabic. So I would again recommend sticking to MSA and then should you decide to perfect classic Arabic, that would be a walk in the park.
    Classic Arabic is certainly important for those who wish to learn Arabic for theological studies (Islamic studies) and for classic Arabic literature.
    Short non-boring summary: MSA will get you anywhere and it is the only form of Arabic that qualifies as a literary language. Dialects are fine for buying some fruits or a chat with some friends but you cannot call yourself a language speaker with it.
    Classic Arabic is our equivalent to Shakespearean English and it can easily be learned having a good grasp of MSA.
    أتمنى لكم كل التوفيق في تعلم هذه اللغة الرائعة :)

    MSA + Shami or Masri will take you the furthest if you want to engage with the Middle East proper, but if your goal is to engage with more North Africans then Tunsi or Algerian may be better.

    A language spoken by most of the terrorists on earth.
    No joke, it's a truth. Specialists say that if more Americans knew Arabic in the past, 911 could have been prevented.
    Islam claims Arabian is a superior language, but according to linguistics it's not, and other languages are beautiful too.
    Arabic was spread across many parts of the world by Islamic conquest. I don't understand why they are so proud of it.

    I'm an arab girl and it's much better to learn the standard arabic ..why? couse there are tooooo many native arabic dialects even in the same country !!'s difficult to choose between them to learn. some of arabs cann't understand other arabic dialects , but if you learn the standard arabic we can understand you well and slowly slowly you will learn some native words.
    we are just used to speaking in native dialects but learning the standard arabic is the best , easiest and the must correct way. good luck 💖

    About your question Modern Arabic is the best language to learn. I live in Palestine and many tourists come there and I find them speaking modern Arabic. But they really make a lot of mistakes in the pronunciation of Arabic words, yet I understood what they wanted to say with all those mistakes.
    and good luck for those who want to learn Arabic.

    But in reply to your question, I think it is best to start with modern fus'ha and then introduce the dialect of where you live.

    I'm a native arabic speaker I understand almost all the dialects (except for Moroccan, Tunisian and Algerian ) and I recommend learning the formal Arabic (الفصحى). It's a bit hard (even for me) and has strict rules and grammar but it's the "true" Arabic and all Arabic speakers understand it.

    So,İ think that the dialects are dangerous to Arabs and Arabic world,because there is a risk of seperation from Arabic(the languages become own languages)and forming a own identity upon this dialects,in these days where Arabs are separated by 10+states which form an own identity(instead of defining(firstly!) as Arab to define as Marrocoan,Iraki etc.).

    Studying modern standard Arabic (Al-Fus'ha) first will allow the student to communicate with ANY Arabic-speaking person because we all can understand it. Learning dialects first is not really advised, since for example, if you learn to speak fluent Egyptian dialect, and then try to communicate with a Moroccan person, you will be confused AF because you will have no idea what he/she is saying, on the other hand, if you can speak MSA, you can ask him/her to speak MSA too, then you will get to understand each other.

    As a native speaker, I think it depends on your purpose But personnaly I would recommend learning The standard arabic because it is understood by all arabic countries . If you learn just a spoken dialect , you're gonna have to learn the others as well if you go to their country. And as you said, dialects differ from region to region even in one same country , even in the same town really XD. So to understand the core mechanisms and functioning of arabic , go with the standard arabic.

    I think that whether one should learn MSA or a dialect should depend on their purpose. If they need to learn Arabic in order to live in an Arabic speaking country, then the dialect of that country would come in much more handy than MSA. On the other hand, if they want to learn it for fun or exposure then I think that learning MSA would be a better start, which would also give a better chance for being able to communicate with Arabic speakers than learning a dialect would.

    As an Arab, I want to advise everyone to learn the moden standard arabic
    This will enable you to communicate with any arabic speaker, from Oman to Morroco
    Arabic dialect -even they are more fun and easier to learn- limits your Communication to the specific country you choose to learn it's dialect
    At the end.. arabic is hard
    But I found learning English hard as well at the beginning
