Abstract

Language and dialects are one of the most important subjecte for research nowadays since they are related directly to all fields of life. Neverthless linguists refer to some parameters to identify the difference between language and dialect and yet they have not arrived at a final dicisoin to identify which precedes which thus, the aim of this study is to approve that there are no radical difference between language and dialect because this diffrerence appears when a dialect is chosen by some people to become their formal language, due to several factors which differ because the relation of that factor whith the authority of the state differs. These factors might be political or economical or religious or social. .
