KSGAAL Launches Four New Publications on State of Arabic Language in World

The King Salman Global Academy for Arabic Language (KSGAAL) released on Thursday four new publications as part of the "Arabic in the World" series, which aims to build bridges of communication with Arabic speakers worldwide.

The publications shed light on the state of the Arabic language in several countries, providing data and information about individuals, institutions, and entities that serve the Arabic language.

The new publications in the "Arabic in the World" series for 2024 include the following titles: "The Arabic Language in Chad," "The Arabic Language in Thailand," "The Arabic Language in Kyrgyzstan: A Descriptive, Analytical, and Critical Study," and "The Arabic Language in the Comoros."

They can be downloaded for the benefit of researchers studying the state of the Arabic language, Arabic language planning and policy, linguistic academics, and linguistic institutions within Saudi Arabia.

Secretary General of KSGAAL Dr. Abdullah bin Saleh Al-Washmi noted that the launch of the "Specialized Global Research Track" project falls within the achievement of the academy's strategic goals.

The initiative meets scientific needs, addresses linguistic challenges, fills gaps related to research and scientific publication, and opens diverse scientific and knowledge horizons locally and globally.

It complements the specialized linguistic publishing tracks per the objectives of the Human Capability Development Program, one of the programs to achieve the Saudi Vision 2030.

This initiative is part of the academy's expanded and ongoing publishing program, which addresses various linguistic aspects.

The program involved 1,097 researchers from 76 countries, covering studies in 84 countries across all continents, and resulted in the publication of 218 books. The program's research topics cover different aspects, including six scientific journals issued by the academy with a total of 51 issues.
