Oops: I Almost Missed World Arabic Language Day

Oops: though it's now 11 pm I just learned that today was declared by UNESCO as World Arabic Language Day. Over at the Arabic Literature (in Translation) Blog, M. Lynx Qualey prefers "Arabic Language(s) Day."

Perhaps I'll throw in my two cents over the next few days; meanwhile please check out the UNESCO and Arabic Literature links, and I'll chime in later.
