Arabic is a name applied to a group of dialects of the Central Semitic languages, thus related to and classified alongside other Semitic languages such as Hebrew and the Neo-Aramaic languages. Spoken Arabic varieties have more speakers than any other language in the Semitic language family.— Excerpted from Arabic language on Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
