Tunisian Arabic
Wikipedia (2015)
Tunisian Arabic, or Tunisian, is the set of dialects of Maghrebi Arabic spoken in Tunisia. This dialect is spoken in the main variety of communication in Tunisia and it is used in Medias and Arts. Developed from Classical Arabic, this dialect has submitted language contact due to the political and historical situation of the country and became quite different from Modern Standard Arabic as it has distinctive features, a particular phonology and morphology and even a particular vocabulary.
In this Wikipedia Review, an overview about all the aspects of Tunisian Arabic is given as well as an explanation of the historical development of this Arabic dialect.
