Arabic Diglossia Again (and Again, and Again)

People keep rediscovering what we all know: a SOAS Ph.D. candidate enlightens Slate on a subject we've talked about extensively: "Is Arabic Just One Language?"

Since this will be the 43rd blogpost here with the tag "diglossia," it won't be that big a piece of news to most of you. It's mostly well-enough informed (we can all find quibbles) and perhaps some will learn from it.
