Hi, I'm sorry if you have already received this message bs I REALLY need about 6 or 7 of you 3rabizi writers to complete this study! So, if you haven't responded, can you take 5 minutes and help a brother out?

Hello and As-salam(u) 3aleykum,

My name is Jon Nichols and I am working in the UAE in the field of teaching and linguistics. I am currently studying a phenomenon known as Arabish (also known as Chat Arabic). The objective of this study is to examine the discourse of Arabish as it is used in Arabic blogs.

Should you choose to answer my questions below about you and your writing, I can assure you that your responses will be anonymous and cannot be linked back to you in anyway.

By replying to my survey, you agree to allow me to use your data and/or quotations (anonymously) for publication.

Thank you very much for this very important study on the changing face of English and Arabic.
