Linguist Branching is appropriate for Arabic Language as words branch out mostly from roots, and every root becomes a tree, which is different from others, not because of the tree itself, but because of what society uses. Language branching expresses the controversial relationship between the language and the rules that govern it from one side, and society’s preference of certain terms over others from the other side. This study tries to answer the following questions: does the language impose the used words, or does it offer options for society to choose what suits it? The study reaches a conclusion that there is a very strong and reciprocal relationship between language and society. The relationship is not limited only to social and cultural influences, and more importantly, the fact that in order to understand the behavioral linguistic of a language, one must understand the society it comes from
