Arabic Between Reality and Ideology.
Al-Wer, Enam
International Journal of Applied Linguistics, v7 n2 p251-65 1997
Argues that while much research on spoken Arabic uses Classical Arabic as the standard for measuring variation, the assumption leads to fundamental and persistent misunderstanding of the true situation. More careful examination of empirical data reveals that variation and change in spoken Arabic involves interplay between local varieties and emerging regional standards, independent of classical forms.
