The Arabic Language

Students who are new to the Arabic language are encouraged to do some research of their own in order to establish a historical/linguistic background for their studies. Nevertheless, we will provide an introduction.

Modern Standard Arabic (MSA), or “fusha”, to give a loose phonetic rendering of the Arabic word, is the language of the media, literature and some “educated” conversation. Most, if not all, Arab children learn MSA in school. It is derived from the Classical Arabic that has its most standard example in the Qur’an. In order to follow political developments in the Arabic-speaking world it is necessary to have a command of MSA. It is arguably one of the most difficult languages in the world, considering its complex grammatical structures and rules, though it is also one of the most logical and beautiful. The expressive capacity of the Arabic language allows its authors to wax lyrically. Spoken MSA is the official language of Arabic newspapers as well as news stations, the most popular being Al-Jazeera.
