Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. An Lebanese Argentine is an Argentine citizen or resident alien whose ancestry traces back to any of various waves of immigrants, largely of Arab cultural and linguistic heritage and/or identity, originating from what is now Lebanon. Although a highly diverse group of Argentines in ancestral origins, religion and historic identities Arab Argentines hold a heritage that shares common linguistic, cultural, and political traditions. The majority of the 1.5 million Lebanese Argentines are Christians. The interethnic marriage in the Lebanese community, regardless of religious affiliation, is very high; most community members have only one parent who has Arab ethnicity. As a result of this, the Lebanese community in Argentina shows marked language shift away from Arabic. Only a few speak any Arabic, and such knowledge is often limited to a few basic words. Instead the majority, especially those of younger generations, speak Spanish as a first language.
