The other 16 countries that have Arabic as an official language are for the most part also tiny or at least not very populous.

Not sure about Yemen, but my guess is that the population for Saudi Arabia includes a lot of menial laborers from South Asia.

My thoughts exactly. Btw. there being so many language quizzes on Jetpunk don't you think it's time for a "language badge"? ;)

On your other quizzes If morocco is a answer, i type "morroco" and that gets accepted, why not this time? I got 9/10 instead of 10/10

I'm shocked by that Yemen percentage. I really can't figure that one out. Is it possible that there's a differentiation between different dialects of Arabic?

I never knew any Yemenis that didn't speak Arabic and I've known many. The Wikipedia article on the subject lists many other native languages spoken in the country, but none with very high numbers of speakers.

They meant percentage of Arabic speakers, which is 56% of the population. Pretty low for a country that has Arabia in the name eh?

I have the percent of Arabic speakers in Oman as 88.6% according to Wikipedia. This is probably wrong, so what source are you using?

the percentage does not really matter. The total in oman is 2.5 million so not enough to make this list.

Weird how half of these are in africa and not he middle east :o. Lately ( i believe through this site) I learned arabic was spoken in egypt. BUt had no idea about the other countries, and was also surprised that not the entire middle east was considered as arabic speaking. Learned something knew. (will now have to look up what languages they speak in morocco though, cause we call it marokkaans.)

if besides moroccan/marrokaans I had to guess another language I would have said berber

What source are you using? Because for saudi Arabia I get more like 90%. 27 million instead of 17 million native arabic speakers.

(or a typo? accidentally used a 1 instead of 2 ?)
