Critically examining the hierarchical relation between Standard Arabic/SA and regional varieties/RA from folk and modern linguistics perspectives, I propose a 'lateral bilingualism' model recognizing both as instructional languages, acknowledging speakers' fundamental rights to mothertongue education, and the symbolic value of SA but orienting it toward globalization and instrumentality.
