Chapter Summary

Although in the field of Arabic language studies the obvious bears repetition since ideology tries so hard to bury it. It is that the huge majority of readers in the various Arab regions do the huge majority of their reading in local rather than international papers, and because this is the case, it is to be expected that divergences will begin to show up among these various communities of use. In a study published in the Perspectives on Arabic Linguistics series (Parkinson 2003), the author presented data on the variable choice of sawfa or sa- as a future particle. It is well known that the spelling of hamza differs from region to region, partly due to the effect of some Cairo Language Academy decisions that other regions clearly do not recognize.

Keywords:Arabic language; hamza; international papers
