    Nice of you to tackle this subject. I took a course in Hijazi dialect once that was useful in the Gulf and lower Sham – it is sort of what the bedu in that area speak. Sort of a sliding scale, you might say. Anyway, among academics, there is some argument over how to represent dialect (of any kind, really) since the way it is pronounced may be at variance with how it is already represented in arabic, etc. etc. For me, to each his own – I still have trouble with transliteration devices. One guide to follow may be the way people represent arabic sounds in roman-based SMSes. :-)

    Anyway, I love the sight’s new look and the info is great!!! I even like the DOS command shortcuts (I still remember my Basic and FORTRAN days…. pain!)

    Ciao!

    Hello! First of all, I want to tell you that the job which you are doing is simply amazing and it helped me a lot in understanding the Bedouin dialect. Could you please post more videos with series in the Bedouin Dialect? That would really help!
    Thank you very much and keep up the good work!
