Similarities Between Spanish and Arabic

Download videos:

In today’s language challenge, we will compare Spanish and Arabic, with Darling (Spanish speaker), and Loay (Arabic speaker), challenging one another with a list of words and sentences. If you live in Toronto or the surrounding areas and would like to participate in a future video, and/or if you have any suggestions or feedback, please contact us on Instagram: Shahrzad ( Arabic is a Central Semitic language and has official/national status Algeria, Bahrain, Comoros, Chad, Djibouti, Egypt, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Mauritania, Morocco, Oman, Palestine, Qatar, SADR, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Tanzania (Zanzibar), Tunisia, United Arab Emirates, and Yemen. Spanish is a Western Romance language that originated in the Castile region of Spain which has expanded to become the world's second-most spoken native language group of languages. Most of modern Spanish comes from Latin, with ancient Greek and Arabic also having an impact on the language. It has also been influenced by Basque, Iberian, Celtiberian, Visigothic, French, Italian, Occitan, Catalan and Sardinian, as well as from Nahuatl, Quechua, and other indigenous languages of the Americas. The Spanish language evolved from Vulgar Latin, which was brought to the Iberian Peninsula by the Romans during the Second Punic War, beginning in 210 BC. Previously, several pre-Roman languages, unrelated to Latin, and some of them unrelated even to Indo-European, were spoken in the Iberian Peninsula. These languages included Basque (still spoken today), Iberian, Celtiberian and Gallaecian. Today, Spanish is the official language of Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Equatorial Guinea, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Puerto Rico, Spain, Uruguay, and Venezuela.

It would be more interesting to do a comparison between Moroccan Arabic and Spanish and Portuguese since Morocco was the one that ruled over parts of them for a long time.

(before watching the video) As an Arab-Mexican, I know that the clothing items sounds similar. Bantalon, Pantalones. Qamis, Camisa. So, this'll be interesting for me! Lol
I speak Spanish and was aware that there a lot of words of Arabic origin, such as \
Antonio Zaccaria
You have to try Italian and Arabic
Arturo Valdemar
She's from Venezuela. The Venezuelan accent is beautiful, but not particularly clear. I think that's why he had a hard time guessing some of the words.
Arabic is just a influence for Spanish, but the true root of Spanish is Latin.
All of these words are current and common Arabic, not Andalusian only. I’m from Kuwait. The way we pronounce them in modern dialect is closer to Spanish than this gentleman’s fine Classical Arabic pronunciation. Moreover, Spanish dialect (from Spain as opposed to the Americas) is much closer to Arabic; including the KH (that’s missed in America) like Almokhada or Jamon, with a KH خ in Spain. It turns into an H in American Spanish.

Love to Spanish people and Latin people ❤️ from Saudi Arabia 🇸🇦 ....i wish i know Spanish 😢

Interesting point raised! Arabic and Spanish had a vast larger amount in common during the time of Al-Andalus from 711 to 1492. A large chunk of those words have either changed so much through time that they are not similar at all or aren't being used in both languages anymore. After the Reconquista process and the Alhambra decree in the 15th century the Catholic rulers of Spain aimed to eliminate much of the Islamic influence, not only religiously but also culturally and linguistically. In the 10th and 11th centuries at the height of the rise of the Caliphate of Cordoba, the similarities would have reached its peak.
Francisco Anjos Guitarra
Almost all of these words are similar in portuguese: hasta=até; rahena=refém; cúrcuma=curcuma; fulan=fulano; jarra=jarra; in sha allah=oxalá; alfarería=olaria (this is one of the few that may have diferent origin); rukn=canto (this one also); azúcar=açucar; zayt=azeite; ataúd=caixão (another one that's diferent); almokhada=almofada; añil=anil; alqitran=alcatrão; aceitunas=azeitonas; alarz=arroz.\n\nWe are all brothers and sisters.
Friendly Creature
Would you please try Arabic and Swahili ? \nThese two languages have a lot im common, even the name of the language Swahili comes from Arabic, means ( Coast ) \nEastern Coast of Africa were some countries speak it.
ليس هناك الكثير من الكلمات بسبب \nان حملات قامت جاهده بمحو تاريخ الوجود الاسلامي هناك \nفاستبدلوا الكلمات العربية بأنجليزية او فرنسية \nاما كلمات المستخدمة علميًّا فهي لازالت عربية \nوأيضًا من الشائع استخدام الإسبان الان في اسبانيا او الناطقين بالإسبانية ( ال التعريف ، وحتى بأستخدامها الصحيح والكثير ولكن هذا ما حضرني الى الان ) \nالتأثير بالعكس كان عميقًا جدًا ومن شدت عمقه هناك الكثير لم يمحى ولم يستطيعوا محوه من عقول الناس رغم وحشيتهم من قتل وتعذيب وتغيير ديانه غصبًا . \nوشكرًا 🌹

Don't forget the arabian spend 800 years in Spain until 1492. They enriched the culture and the spanish language.
Johnny Melendrez
This was an awesome video man. I love videos that deal with both Arabic and Spanish and the words that Spanish has absorbed from the language!
João Oliveira
Omg!!! I'm from Portugal and I could guess almost every word from the Arabic language

Arabic and Spanish are not related to each other at all!! it's a nonsense. The Arabic words in Spanish are less than 8% and the influence was not produced by Arabs but Mozarabs. The Christian Mozarabs were bilingual(Mozarabic/Arabic) and they were responsible for introducing arabisms in Spanish by migrating to northern Christian kingdoms
I suggest Arabic and Maltese.

Very nice job❤️.. Can u make Kurdish and Afgani languages I think ther is a lot of similar words😍😍
Mohammad Khaled
More (Arabic vs.....) videos please. It's just amazing! But don't bring Egyptians as the Arab side rofl. Try someone from the Gulf area or the Levant (Like Lo'ay). They are the closest to true Arabic pronunciation. After all, pronunciation is the key here in this game, right?
Mostafa Alorgan
Even the Spanish word \

Olivia Meirelles
In Portuguese - refém - I only get it with the subtle in English 😂😂 but is very similar with Portuguese to! I’m amazed! I always knew that Portuguese have same Arabic derived words like Almoço, alface , alicate and almoxarifado but refém !? Great channel!
Omar F Alshaer
I learned Dutch language and discovered more than 100 words similar to Arabic
Omar G.
I must say, it was a great idea to do this with two speakers that geographically are really far. Modern Standard Arabic compared to different dialects of Arabic is very different. It's well known that Maghrebi Arabic speakers in Morocco frequently use certain words in common with Spanish that no Arabic speaker in the Levant or the Gulf region do. So for me, it is more interesting to see standard Arabic compared to Spanish and not just from Spain, because now we can see just how far the extent of influence has gone. Really good job!

In Andalusian Spanish dialect is spoken in Puerto Rico since the Andalusians settled in the Carribean. For Hasta, we do say or can say hata.

pls do arabic vs hindi
Spanish Words Derived from Arabic\n\nStrange how I used these following words or heard them being use by my parents and others and never imagined that they were of Arabic origin. \n\n\nalfombra: Carpet. Two meanings; from Arabic al-jumra and from Arabic al-humra.\n\njabalí : Wild Boar. From Arabic jebeli: From the mountains. Perhaps originally from Khanzeer Jebelí: Mountain Pig.\n\nloco: crazy. From Arabic lawqa \
If you do a Catalan-Italian video I can help you find sentences and words that are surprisingly similar
Saif Kayed
Maltese and Arabic. Thank you!!!
Sara 2017
I thought Spanish language has (kh) (خ) letter ? They usually pronounce the (j) as a( kh) or does it differ since she is from Venezuela not Spain ? I am really confused ! \nThanks for the video !

This video is incredible, because it touches on the history and includes innovative original information. I have watched various videos comparing Spanish and Arabic but they mostly just have the same few words, and some of them are basically universal words. But this video is very unique and by far a lot more interesting than any other I’ve seen. Thank you!!

Loay's Standard Arabic pronunciation is perfect.
How interesting! I live in Granada (Spain), and here there's a village which name is Alfacar. Alfacar is famous due to his pottery or alfarería.
I speak Portuguese. I think we are fonetically closer to Arabic.\nOxalá (x=sh)\nJarra (same as arabic)\nAzeite, açúcar (ç=s)\nFalua (feluka)\nAlmofada, arroz, tâmara (date), azulejo, anil, alcácer (castelo), azeitona, Portuguese also has lots of places: Algarve, Almada, Odeceixe, Aljube... loved the video!
