Description:
Gulf Arabic (also known as Khaliji, al-lahja al-khalijiya اللهجة الخليجية) is a variety of the Arabic language spoken around both shores of the Persian Gulf such as in Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, Oman & south-western Iran. Some notable characteristics that set it apart from other Arabian dialects are the presence of Persian loanwords and a pronunciation of k as ch (kalb "dog," read as chalb); q as g (daqiqa "minute," read as dagiga); and, in some instances, the pronunciation j as y (jeeb "bring" (masc), read as yeeb).
