The Arab World and the Language of Politics

Abdullah Qabani


Language society and politics are terms, which are interchangeably important. Those three terms are linked in a way that is beyond separation or argument when it comes to analyzing discourse in general and political discourse in particular. Through language, society can deliver politics and impose beliefs and ideologies. The relationship between Arabs in general and politics has been a source of questions for decades due to many reasons. These reasons vary between social and historic reasons. This study aims to discuss and track how Arab writers and scholars looked at politics in their writings and how they perceived its importance and role starting with the early Islamic era and ending with our current days. It has been found that there is an apparent and close relationship between politics and religion. Further, it has been noticed that the political discourse delivered by Arab leaders has not received proper attention in terms of its effect on the different Arabic societies and the different political events that took place throughout the post-colonialism era.
