Baharna Arabic (also known as Bahrani and Bahrani Arabic) is a variety of Arabic spoken by the Bahranis of Bahrain, and also in Oman. In Bahrain, the dialect is spoken in the capital, Manama, and in most Bahraini villages. Others speak a Gulf dialect which is more similar to those spoken in Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates. In Saudi Arabia, the dialect is spoken in and around Qatif. The differences between Bahrani Arabic and neighboring dialects suggest differing historical origins. The main differences between Bahrani and non-Bahrani dialects are evident in certain grammatical forms and pronunciation. Most of the vocabulary, however, is shared between dialects, or is distinctly Bahraini, arising from a shared modern history. Many Bahrani words have also been borrowed from Hindi or English.
