On Language in Morocco…

  • “While both Modern Standard Arabic (MSA) and Colloquial Moroccan Arabic (CMA) derive largely from the same basic source (so-called Classical Arabic), they are in many ways two distinct languages. MSA is the language of the news media, written correspondence and documents, literature and formal speeches.”

  • “As strange as it might sound, MSA is not a language spoken fluently by the majority of Moroccans. Though few educated Moroccans have difficulty reading Arabic and understanding Arabic news broadcasts, few of them feel truly confident in using it in oral communication.”

  • “You should also be aware of the typical Moroccan attitude toward CMA: it is not regarded as a language in the formal sense of the word…”

  • “To further complicate matters ... many Moroccan professionals have been educated in France or in a French mold, so that in discussing more intellectual or technical topics, they may have difficulty expressing themselves without resorting to French”
