A Short Introduction to Arabic: There are twenty independent Middle Eastern and African

states in which Arabic is the official language. Recent estimates put the total number of native speakers of Arabic at about 300 million. Moreover, Arabic is one of the six main official languages in UNESCO since 1997. Modern Standard Arabic (‘MSA’ henceforth) is the modern descendant of Classical Arabic. MSA is used in many formal occasions like news broadcasts, political speeches and most importantly in schools and university education and is always seen as the high form of the language throughout the Arabic-

speaking world. Basically, it is the language of writing and formal speaking. The colloquial Arabic or Arabic dialect is a form of a spoken language and it is used in informal conversations among friends, colleagues, and at home. The spoken Arabic varies from country to country and from city to city. The greater geographic distance between countries, the greater is the difference between the spoken dialects.

12/30/14 9:12:13 AM


The difference between MSA and colloquial Arabic can be

observed in pronunciation and vocabulary. With respect to

pronunciation, there are phonological variations all over the

Arabic-speaking world. For example, the Arabic sound /j/ is sometimes pronounced /g/ in Egyptian dialect and /y/ in Emirati dialect. Regarding the vocabulary, naafida is Arabic for ‘window’, while it is shibbaak in Egyptian dialect and direeshah in Emirati dialect. In addition, there is a couple of non-Arabic, borrowed sounds that have been incorporated in the consonantal inventory of the dialect, namely /ch/ and /g/. Despite these dialectal varieties, most Arabic speakers understand one another.

The Emirati dialect: The Emirati Dialect is one of the Arabic dialects spoken in the United Arab Emirates. This dialect shares the characteristics

of east south Arabian spoken Arabic variety as well as the Gulf region. The geographical location of the UAE, which stretches from the Arabian Gulf coast in the West to the Gulf of Oman in the East and with boundaries adjacent to other GCC states in the North and South, created a rich variety of phonetic variables in the dialect. Excavation attestations tell that this area was a settlement of several Semitic races.

Therefore, phonetic variation is clear when you move around in different settlement Zones. Although, in the last forty years of human mobility from rural areas to main cities in the country has diminished this variation we can still identify three main divisions: Abu Dhabi (which include AlAin and Western Zone of AbuDhabi and the Islands); Northern Emirates (which include Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman, Um AlQewein and some parts of Ras al-Khaimah); East Coast

���� �������� - ���� ������.indd 13

Spoken Emirati Phrasebook 13

12/30/14 9:12:13 AM


(which include Al-Fujairah and adjacent area). For example,

the negative particle “mob” should be mentioned in the grammatical notification with its spoken variables which are “mesh” in Abu Dhabi, “mob” in the Northern Emirates, “ma” in the East Coast (Fujairah and adjacent areas).

Furthermore, since the establishment of the United Arab Emirates, the Emirati dialect went through many developments as a reflection of the demographic structure of the society. For instance, the UAE became a sanctuary

for many Arabs and other nationalities who disembarked on UAE for Job opportunities. This inflow of multinational

vernaculars triggered the need for a standard method of communication. As a result the Emirati dialect that is used for multinational communication received influences from other Arabic dialects as well as many borrowed words from other foreign languages. For instance, words that deals with mechanical matters are English words borrowed through an Indian tongue and hence modified to suit the Arabic

pronunciation e.g words such as “drewel”is a modified

���� �������� - ���� ������.indd 14

12/30/14 9:12:13 AM


pronunciation of the English word “driver”; “motar”(car) is modified pronunciation of the English word “motor; etc.

In the spoken Emirati dialect, it is common to replace some letters. The following are variations in pronunciation when the letter spoken in Emirati dialect: Replace "j" with "y" Replace "k" with "ch" Replace "q" with "g" or «j»

Clarification notes: a. Most of the examples used in this phrasebook are in singular masculine form for simplification purposes.

b. When different gender forms applied, the masculine form is followed by (m); feminine by (f); plural by (pl). c. Most of the words ending in -ah are feminine. d. When you notice two words separated by a slash, this means that both words are equally used in Emirati dialect. Feel free to choose whichever is suitable for you!

e. The negative particle ‘not’ is mob in Emirati dialect. For example, ana mob amreekee ‘I am not American’.

f. The definite article ‘the’ is ‘il’ in Emirati dialect and ‘al’ in MSA occurs in beginning of a word. E.g.: il-bait ‘the house’. g. The underlined phrasemeans response or reply back of the above phrase.
