I am not sure which language you are talking about, if you mean Mozarabic, it
doesn't really exist today- the Spanish part of the language took over its
Arabic counterpart, and sure, a lot of Arabic words are still present, but
not enough to make it a separate language from Spanish because the National
Spanish Language Society in Spain adopted those Arabic words as part of the
official Catilian Spanish.
