More Arabic Questions

I think they mostly vary on the vowels like English dialects, but also like
English dialects, some consonants do vary.  I think this is because all the
arabic dialects have the same exact written language (unpointed Classical Arabic)
so they don't have any standard for vowels to unite the dialects out of the
standard dialect (which I thought is actually almost exactly like the Egyptian
dialect with few variations).
