Description

Arabic is the official language of Lebanon and Lebanese Arabic is an Arabic dialect completely indigenous to the country. Also known as Levantine Arabic, this dialect shares many features with standard Arabic – the official language used in formal communication in all Arab countries including newspapers, news channels, books, etc.

What makes this language interesting is that written ‘Lebanese Arabic’ is different from the ‘Lebanese’ spoken. Learn Lebanese Arabic and live through the history of Lebanon as you discover this flowery language with its unique pronunciation, Arabic grammar, and vocabulary.

How Did the Lebanese Language Emerge?

The contemporary Lebanese language is a development of its parent Semitic language- Aramaic. The entire region spoke Aramaic until around 900 AD. Later, many Aramaic dialects, particularly in the highlands and North Lebanon, were spoken by the population of Lebanon, while some Arabic dialects were adopted in select coastal regions.

The Lebanon inhabitants gradually fused their Aramaic with Arabic. A small portion of Turkish also got blended during the 17th and 20th centuries. The Lebanese language has evolved to the extent that some French and English got incorporated over the previous century.

Some researchers go even further down the history to the Phoenician (Canaanite) language that the region’s natives used before Aramaic, which shares words with Arabic, Aramaic, and Hebrew.

Is There Any Distinction Between Arabic and Lebanese Languages?

Lebanese and Arabic share Semitic roots. Much like Spanish and Italian, they share a large number of terms and grammar rules. But if someone takes an Arabic language online course, they won’t be able to speak Lebanese and vice versa.

Lebanese and Arabic are two distinct languages, even though some people consider Lebanese as Lebanese-Arabic because it contains Arabic. Regardless of the fact that about 50% of the words used in Lebanese have Arabic roots, the vocabulary has been altered and developed through the ages.

Fun fact: one of the most common ways to say Good Morning is ‘bonjour’ borrowed from French.

Did you know that the people of Lebanon are typically trilingual? A large portion of the population speaks Lebanese Arabic, French, and English. Because of this, you’ll see English and French influences in Arabic that is spoken in Lebanon. Lebanese Arabic can be understood by most in other Arabic speaking countries, regardless of the dialect. For example, someone who speaks Egyptian Arabic will be able to understand Lebanese Arabic and vice versa. Learn Lebanese Arabic and introduce yourself to words and phrases commonly used in Lebanon.
