He is most famous for proposing the creation of the Lebanese language, distinct from Arabic with its own Latin-based alphabet system made up of 36 letters and it is now used in chatting on all mediums.
His writings include poetry and prose both in Lebanese dialect and in classical Arabic language. He has also written theatre pieces and authored lyrics for many popular songs and prayers.
Akl adopted a powerful doctrine of the authentic millennial character of Lebanon resonating with an exalted sense of Lebanese dignity.

In 1968 he stated that literary Arabic would vanish from Lebanon.
He has been always emphasizing the Phoenician legacy of the Lebanese people.
