The Arabic language

Welcome, or as they say in Arabic – أهلاً وسهلاً
Arabic belongs to the Semitic languages and is spoken by over 290 million people as their mother tongue. Arabic is the official language in 28 countries. These include Algeria, Bahrain, Egypt, Iraq, Israel, Kuwait, Libya, Morocco, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Tunisia and the United Arab Emirates. Furthermore, Arabic – together with English, French, Spanish, Chinese and Russian – is one of the six official languages of the United Nations.

Language peculiarities

As in Chinese, there are countless dialects in Arabic. In some cases, these differ so much from country to country that speakers of different Arabic dialects cannot understand each other, or can only understand each other with difficulty. Modern Standard Arabic – the written language – is universal, but differs enormously from the spoken language depending on the country/region.

The primary writing direction, i.e. the order of the consecutive individual characters, differs in Arabic from the English writing direction. This is true of most Semitic languages, as well as Hebrew. The English script is written horizontally left-to-right (primary writing direction), Arabic however is written horizontally right-to-left.

The secondary writing direction, on the other hand, is the same in Arabic and English and determines the order of successive lines. In English, as in most languages using Latin script, the secondary writing direction is top-to-bottom.
