The Arab street is stopping speaking Arabic

OK, Jordanian Starbucks customers (via Taccuino di Traduzione). More on Arabizi and language death from Jordanian blogger Lina.

I guess that there must have also existed Romance-Arabic creoles at some stage (Mozarabic was, of course, not one), but I’m not about to start rabbiting on about that kind of stuff again.
