👪🔊: More than 400 million speak one of 30 varieties of contemporary Arabic, and hundreds of millions are familiar with Classical Arabic, the language of the Koran. Modern Standard Arabic is the written version that is the first to be documented in Kamusi. With our innovative approach to dialects, we will be undertaking work on other varients beginning in October 2016.

Our biggest struggle is keeping Kamusi online and keeping it free. We cannot charge money for our services because that would block access to the very people we most want to benefit, the students and speakers of languages around the world that are almost always excluded from information technology. So, we ask, request, beseech, beg you, to please support our work by donating as generously as you can to help build and maintain this unique public resource.
