Alphabet[edit]

I recently found this [1] picture online that depicts the Cypriot Maronite Arabic alphabet. What do you all think, reliable, not reliable? Seric2 (talk) 10:47, 24 July 2012 (UTC)

Meaning of sentence[edit]

It is believed these common features go back to a period in which there was a dialect continuum between the Mesopotamian dialects and the Syrian dialect area.

What is this sentence supposed to mean? --Warenford (talk) 21:03, 19 May 2013 (UTC)

Phonology[edit]

What exactly happened to the qaf in Cypriot Arabic? The Phonology section fails to mention that, even though the reflex of Classical /q/ is the most important and most meaningful classification tool in Arabic dialects (it reveals, after all, the social class where the dialect comes from).

Borg says it turned into /k/. I've added it to the article. 62.228.170.218 (talk) 11:23, 19 September 2014 (UTC)
