Arabic has been a language with a global reach beyond the Arab Middle East and North Africa, where it is natively spoken. Motivations for learning Arabic are mounting across many academic disciplines and occupational domains, heralding unprecedented need for creating and teaching courses with specialized content. These specific purposes, defined in this chapter within the genre analysis tradition following Swales (1990) and Fakhri (2014) as the circumscribed language, rhetoric, value, conventions, and practices of the discipline, are amply unmet. Arabic for Specific Purposes (ASP), as a field of study, currently has reached a stage of development that falls within a range somewhere between lexico-grammatical and the discipline’s particular content.
