A brief introduction to the Arabic language
Like Aramaic or Hebrew, Arabic is a Semitic language. There are three variants of Arabic; Classical Arabic, Modern Standard Arabic, and Colloquial Arabic. The Qu’ran is written in Classical Arabic, but this variety is neither used in non-religious conversations nor writing. Therefore, you would only learn Classical Arabic, if you wanted to read or recite the religious texts of Islam.
There is a diglossia between Modern Standard, and Colloquial Arabic. Of course neither Modern Arabic, nor Colloquial Arabic is a static language, as both have undergone drastic changes, and both are expected to undergo even further changes. The first documents written in Arabic date back to the early 4th century BC, However, it did take until the beginning of the 7th century, until Arabic became the official language it is today, thanks to the Qu’ran.
Today, Arabic is the official language of 20 countries, as well as being co-official in at least six. Furthermore it is one of the languages used by the United Nations. There are around 180 million Arabic speakers in the world making it one of the most spoken languages in the world.
In terms of its script, Arabic has its own writing system, which is written form right to left; furthermore all letters are joined up, and therefore, every letter can be written in up to four different ways, depending on its position in a word, whether it is isolated, at the beginning, middle or end. Except for some cases, every grapheme corresponds to a phoneme. Another characteristic of Arabic is that it does not use capital letters.
Arabic has two genders, masculine and feminine, as well as three grammatical numbers, singular, dual and plural. In Arabic, nouns are declined according to the three cases, nominative, accusative, and genitive, all three cases have a definite and an indefinite form.
