of survey complete.
Dear participants, This survey is conducted by Ms. Amany Haroun as part of a study on the use of Arabish in online interactions. Arabish means "the Arabic chat Alphabet that is used to communicate in the Arabic language over the Internet or for sending messages via mobile telephones when the Arabic alphabet is unavailable. It is mainly a character encoding of Arabic to the Latin alphabet (ASCII)"(Wikipedia, 2010; AlJarf, 2009).
The purpose of this Questionnaire is to explore the reasons as well as the impact of such a sociolinguistic phenomenon on the Arabic Language especially when the Arabic Alphabet is available or when the speakers are originally chatting in English and suddenly switch to Arabic.
You only need less than 5 minutes to finish this Questionnaire. Have a wonderful time! Amany Haroun
