Welcome to the Arabic Language Discussion Forum

Being a retired professor of Arabic and Linguistics, I have elected to publish an archive on how the Arabic language is used in America and across cultures.

I hope to establish a dialogue with people interested in the language, the teaching of the language, the learning of the language, and the interaction of Arabic and English while learning the language.

I am also interested in having a discussion as to the use of Arabic within the contexts of globalization.

Arabic is very much a language that binds a culture and defines a people. This blog is dedicated to understanding how American use, learn, and teach the Arabic language, and how Arabic, in Arab countries has been impacted crossculturally.

A Routledge Language announcement

Author of the Month: Leila Samy
 Leila Samy, co-author of Basic Arabic, is May's Author of the Month! Leila Samy, MPH, directs a Federal Government program to help under served (e.g., poor and rural) communities across the Unites States (US) leverage technology to improve health care quality and fuel economic development.
In a new interview, Ms. Samy opened up about what makes the Arabic language so special, completing Basic Arabic after the passing of her father and co-author Waheed Samy, what sets this grammar apart from others, and more. Read the entire interview here.

"If we want to properly interpret and engage in issues concerning geopolitics and the Middle East or successfully negotiate compelling deals with certain emerging markets, we should collectively learn more Arabic. By learning Arabic, we can understand Arab media, listen to “both sides” of a conversation, have a more effective dialog, reach a wider audience and ultimately make smarter decisions."
