Alshehhi Special Dialect[edit]

The Alshehhi tribe has a special dialect different from any other Arabic speaking tribes in the Arabian Peninsula. The dialect of the Shohooh mountain tribes in Ras al-Khaimah and Musandam Governorate is a living example of the history of the Arabic language's evolution in the region.
