Default A new word a day

Inspired by the youtube video of the girl with the big boobs teaching one japanese word a day I thought it could kinda work on here.- minus the video and the girl with the big boobs.

So can we learn one arabic word a day please- I know some of the regulars on here speak a certain ammount so am sure we can all learn something. If we can have it idiot proof please eg;

Shukran
Pronounced as shook_ran
Meaning- thank you

anyone else interested?

I do not speak Arabic!

The Arabic Alphabet is actually quite easy to deal with. It is also 100% Phonetic, and almost impossible to make a spelling mistake. Also no Capital Letters which should suit a lot of people here! There are Starting Characters, Intermediate Characters, and End Characters to deal with, but it is quite simple - Only three vowels too!

As if I would misbehave . . .

Mafi Arabeya, literally means "No Arabic"
Min Fadlack means "Please"

There are lots of resources on the Web which will give you an insight into the Arabic Alphabet. As I said earlier, it is very simple, and once you have the basics, you will start to question various words. For instance Arabic does not have a letter 'P' so you will see signs for 'Bebsi Kola!' Farsi has introduced a 'P' and lots of younger Arabic Speakers use it too.

The place name of Sharjah also has several different spellings.
Sometimes it is 'Al Sharzah' or can be 'Al Sharkah.'

:Haldiyatah Jumah: (Quiet Friday)
I have a little book of Hindi, Arabic, Tagalog, and Russian Phrases if you are interested? Most are derived from working here in Dubai, and working in a 'Spirit of Cooperation!' - I hope now that you can see where I was coming from, especially with the inane 'American Comments!' - Some of us do try! We are not sat back in North Carolina wondering if the 'Middle East is somewhere just outside Boston!'
