Syrian Arabic is the a dialect of Levantine Arabic (Arabic: al-lahjah as-samiyyah), is a broad dialect of Arabic spoken in the 100 to 200 km-wide Eastern Mediterranean coastal strip. It is considered one of the five major varieties of Arabic. In the frame of the general diglossia status of the Arab world, Levantine Arabic is used for daily spoken use, while most of the written and official documents and media use Modern Standard Arabic. It is part of Eastern Arabic that includes Mesopotamian Arabic and peninsular Arabic along with Levantine. On the basis of the criterion of mutual intelligibility, Levantine Arabic could be regarded as a self-standing language, as distinct from other members of the Arabic language family such as Egyptian Arabic, Maghrebi Arabic or Peninsular Arabic, in the same way as French, Spanish, Italian and Romanian are all descended from Latin but are separate languages within the family of Romance languages.?
