Ethno linguistic vitality
The variety of dialects among Arab nations will cut off the unity of Arabism and there will be only a geographical proximity. This lingual division will create isolation and misunderstanding between Arabs. Then new for foreign new languages will establish and replace Arabic language. All of these studies it was not made clear how the changing political situation brought about the decline of the role of Arabic and its vitality in the public sphere in country. Only in more recent works have the social-political and legal issues been examined in depth. This study examines the Arabic language in country from a sociolinguistic perspective, considering the changing socio-political situation and its repercussions for Arabic, and thereby gaining insights about the language’s current vitality in country. This paper argues that ethno linguistic vitality depends on four crucial social psychological factors: perceived strength differential, intergroup distance, utilitarianism and intergroup discordance.
