Abstract [en]

Arabic is probably the largest non-native language in Sweden. Yet very little research is conducted on the language practices and attitudes among Arabic heritage speakers. The present paper explores, based on responses to a questionnaire, the practices and attitudes of 25 young second generation speakers of Arabic, born in Sweden yet whose parents were born in an Arabic speaking country. The picture that emerges is complex. With the exception of identity, where a large majority view Arabic as a positive factor, the picture is mixed. Arabic seems to have relatively little impact on the lives of the respondents, with no clearly positive or negative tendencies. One factor seems to be the exception, Arabic in Swedish schools is generally viewed negatively.
