Undecided questions
In Saudi Arabia, is dialect in Hijazi region very different from Gulf dialects?

For example, can people in Jeddah understand people in Dammam?

I know Saudi is a big country, so that is why I ask.

Thank you!

    Yes can understand each other

    yes, people can understand each other except some words and some dialects in the south west region..

    Gulf area dialects including Saudi are related to each other more than other dialects
    So, can understand each other more than other dialects but maybe still there small difference

    There're a lot of dialects within Saudi Arabic and one of them is Hijazi dialect. People in Dammam would not understand all the hijazi terms.
