The Dictionary of Modern Written Arabic is an Arabic- English dictionary compiled by Hans Wehr and edited by J Milton Cowan. First published in 1961 by Otto Harrassowitz in Wiesbaden, Germany, it was an enlarged and revised English version of Wehr' s German Arabisches Wörterbuch für die Schriftsprache der Gegenwart ( " Arabic dictionary for the contemporary written language" ) ( 1952). Egyptian Arabic, locally known as the Egyptian colloquial language, Masri or Masry, meaning simply " Egyptian", is spoken by most contemporary Egyptians. Egyptian is a North African dialect of the Arabic language which is a Semitic branch of the Afro- Asiatic language originated in the Nile Delta in Lower Egypt around the capital Cairo.
Egyptian Arabic evolved from the Quranic mitic languages such as Arabic, Assyrian, Ugaritic, Ethiopic, and Aramaic to discover the basic meaning of many heretofore obscure terms.
