The Journal of Arabic and Diglossia Studies (JADS) is a peer-reviewed scholarly publication dedicated to exploring and examining the intricate relationship between the Arabic language and diglossia and their various sociolinguistic, cultural, historical, and pedagogical dimensions. JADS seeks to provide a platform for researchers, linguists, educators, and scholars from diverse disciplines to engage in rigorous academic discourse on topics related to Arabic/diglossia and its broader implications.
