The Arabic Dialects

A group of the semitic languages within the  Afroasiatic family of languages, Arabic is comprised of many regional dialects that have varying degrees of mutual intelligibility, that is in part dependent on proximity of user groups. Some far flung dialects can be almost unintelligible.  Most of the variations arise in the spoken and colloquial Arabic, versus the relatively regimen ted and structured standard Arabic. Another division is between the dialects spoken by the bedouin versus the more sedentary populations. Geographically, modern Arabic is divided into 6 main groups:

  • Maghrebi
  • Sudanese
  • Egyptian
  • Mesopotamian
  • Levantine
  • Peninsular

Arabic Accented English:

Nothing is worse than a bad Arabic accent unless that is what you are trying to do of course. We help actors and projects to create the perfect Arabic-accented English performances. Read about our process here and why it is so important to have a dialect coach for accented English performances.
