Description

The Egyptian dialect is highly widespread, and evident in Arab pop culture. However, it is often incomprehensible. This project focuses on why and how it came to be the dialect which we are familiar with today. We will understand its evolution and its encompassment of ~1,500 words from 13 “foreign” languages.
