Arabic History

Dating back to the 8th century B.C., Arabic is the only member of the Old North Arabian dialect group to survive. It dates to pre-Islamic Arabic inscriptions and is closely related Aramaic, Hebrew, Ugaritic, and Phoenician.  Descended from the Proto-Semitic language Arabic is in the Afro-Asiatic group of world languages.

Originally Arabic was spoken by small nomadic tribes traveling though the Arabian Peninsula. Arabic began to spread as Islam won more converts and Arab tribes began to conquer others and is now one of the most widely spoken languages in the world.

Today there are 12 different Arabic dialects which are spoken in 28 countries. Modern Standard Arabic is the medium of choice for situations calling for formality. Colloquial Arabic in all its dialects, is primarily a spoken language, used throughout the Arab world for daily affairs. Colloquial Arabic differs radically from the written language. Neither Modern Arabic nor colloquial Arabic are static languages and continue to add new words and concepts as technologies and ideas change.
