I was wondering about the situation of Standard Arabic in North Africa. I mean is it the only written form of Arabic? One of my teachers who recently visited in Tunisia told me that his understanding is differnet. From what he saw there, they write their dialects, as an official type of language. I am not sure he got the picture right, since he's an English native, and knows very few Arabic. I hope you understand what I am trying to say. My main question is, is the vernacular Arabic of North Africa really being written? 'cuz if so, this means a situation where a vernacular is slowly replacing the written, don't you think?
