Casinos supporting Arabic language
While occasionally thought of as a monolithic language, Arabic is actually split into a number of forms that are used in different social contexts depending on geography and position in societal hierarchies.
While what is known as Classical Arabic was the dominate form for the language until the 6th century, it was eventually replaced with a dialect known as Literary Arabic of Modern Standard Arabic due to its popularity in written works, especially the Quran. That being said, Literary Arabic shouldn't be confused with written Arabic, which has its own grammar rules and is far more formal and conservative than any spoken form. Despite the wide range of sub-languages of Arabic, some mutually unintelligible from one another, they are often grouped together as a sociolinguistic language, meaning that they are linguistically distinct but thought of as a single language due to political or religious considerations.
Arabic in one form or another is spoken in countries all over the Middle East, North Africa, and around the Horn of Africa. It has roughly 420 million native speakers worldwide if all versions are considered, with Egyptian Arabic being the most widely spoken dialect at 54 million native speakers. It is the official liturgical language of the world's 1.6 billion Muslims.
