The purpose of this study is to search a means for geographical characterization of Arabic speakers when speaking standard Arabic. Different approaches are used to attempt to define a methodology of the identification of geographic origin by means of dialectal marks in standard Arabic. 114 utterances produced by 18 arabic subjects have been studied by means of sonagraphic analysis and 16 utterances by long term average spectrum (LTAS). The sentences have been studied by interspectral correlation coefficient. Among several approaches, the LTAS appears as a reliable means of characterization.
