Each nation has its own “Arabic dialect” or “Amiya” for everyday speaking. The distinctions are based on sound rather than vocabulary or grammar.
Egyptian Arabic (a spoken variation of the macrolanguage) is Egypt’s most widely spoken language and is regarded as the country’s de facto national language. It combines Arabic, Coptic, Turkish, Ottoman, French, and Italian elements in its modern form.
Other widely spoken Arabic dialects include Sa’idi Arabic (spoken mostly by rural communities near the Sudanese border), Sudanese Arabic (spoken primarily by Sudanese immigrants), North Levantine, Ta’izzi-Adeni, Algerian, Gulf, and Moroccan, among others.
Furthermore, educated Egyptians are more likely to speak English or French as a second language. Egypt has a population of about 3 million French speakers. Adyghe, Amharic, Greek, Armenian, and Italian are among the immigrant languages spoken in Egypt.
