Aleppo Arabic or Aleppo Dialect is the urban Arabic variety spoken in the city of Aleppo.


Aleppo Arabic is characterised by the usage of /d͡ʒ/ instead of the typical urban /ʒ/ used in Damascus Arabic and in Lebanese Arabic.[1] It agrees with Lebanese Arabic with its usage of medial imāla which often turns /a:/ into /e:/. Also has /t͡ʃ/, which is not typical of urban Levantine dialects.[2]
