Arabic as a Minority Language

Synopsis

The present book will be the first to center on the status of Arabic as a minority language. In the first instance it will focus attention on the existence of many varieties of Arabic outside of the Arabic world. It will further contribute to the growing literature on minority languages, placing a special emphasis on the relationship between minority status and language form.
