Moderator: I am not sure if I am able to discuss this question in this forum or not. If it does not conform to forum rules, then please delete it. I have lived in an English speaking country since my childhood. I believe if I went to any other English speaking country, my English would be understood and I am sure I will be able to understand English speaking natives of that country. Similarly, my Urdu and Punjabi would be understood anywhere in the world where there are Urdu and Punjabi speakers. From my knowledge of Arabic, albeit fairly meagre, I am aware that at least some Arabic dialects are quite distinct from MSA. My question is this. In due course when education is widespread all over the Arabic speaking world, will there come a time when people will speak a relatively standardized Arabic even if it does n't quite match up with MSA?
