English term or phrase: language
people from every language group
Arabic translation:لُغَويّة
Explanation:
The standard term for “language” is

لُغة

Pronounced LUGHA, where the U is like the U in "pull," the GH cluster sounds like a French R, and the final A is short. The stress is on the first syllable.

In the phrase "language group," however, the term "language" functions as an adjective. The phrase "language group" may be translated as

مجموعة لغوية

Pronounced: MAJMOO'A LUGHAWIYYA.

LUGHAWIYYA is the feminine form of LUGHAWWIY ("linguistic"). We need the feminine form here, because MAJMOO'A ("group") is feminine.

Nason Min Kulli fi'aten lughawiyah


Explanation:
Laguage means "Lugha" in Arabic, but in the context here it comes in the adjective form and the translation is "Lughawiyah" for it is in the feminin gender since "fi'ah" is a feminin word.
