Arabic Word of the Day 25#

Hey guys! "Alyawm" (remember?) we will look at a few more words linked to the last few lessons, هيا نبدأ ! (let's start!) :

*يوم = "Yawm" = Day - We have gone through this briefly last lesson. Don't get this mixed up with "alyawm". "Alyawm" is "today" and "yawm" is "day"!

*أسبوع = "usboo3" = Week

*شهر = "shahr" = Month - Make sure the 'h' is pronounced. I say this because in English, we tend to not pronounce the 'h' sound. In Arabic, you always pronounce it unless it's at the end of a sentence.

*سنة = "sana" = Year

*كل يوم = "Kul'la yawm" = Everyday - So "kul'la" means "every" and "yawm" means "day". So the only new word here is "kul'la".

*كل أسبوع = "Kul'la usboo3" = Every Week

*كل شهر = "Kul'la shahr" = Every Month

*كل سنة = "Kul'la sana" = Every Year

*So now we can make our sentence even more complex. So this is what we started with on Wednesday:

*أنا أذهب إلى المدرسة = "Anaa ath'hab ilaa almadrasa" = I go to school

*Yesterday were able to say days of the week like this:

*اليوم الجمعة = "Alyawm aljumu3a" = Today is Friday

*Now we can mash these up with what we've done today:

*أنا أذهب إلى المدرسة كل جمعة = "Anaa ath'hab ilaa almadrasa kul'la jumu3a" = I go to school every Friday.

*Now you may have noticed that when I wrote "every Friday", instead of writing "kul'la aljumu3a" I wrote "Kul'la jumu3a":

*We already know that "al" means 'the', don't we? So when we say "aljumu3a" it technically means 'the Friday'. When we say "alyawm aljumu3a", we are in fact saying "today is the Friday". But when we translate into English, it will just be "today is Friday".

*When we add "kul'la" before "aljumu3a", it means every Friday is included, meaning there is no specific Friday, hence you cannot use 'the' (al). Get it? (If no, then comment below and I'll try to explain better)

*Thanks for Reading! Any Qs, Proof-reading, Suggestions, Improvements, please comment below and I'll be more than happy to do so. Tomorrow we'll be going through some Months (they are very similar to English which makes this easy!), but any suggestions for future topics would be very appreciated. Have a Nice Evening! CYA ;D

Gracias de nuevo, yo siempre aprendo mucho de tus leeciones. Ahora sé sobre los días y cosas así en árabe. Aquí hay unos pocos lingots para tí.

Ayer se me olvidé la palabra para "España" en árabe, así que yo recordé que tú hiciste un post sobre países y encontré la palabra que necesité.

How could you forget that Andres? It is exactly the same pronunciation as it is in Spanish, except that the "p" is a light "b" (which sounds a bit like a 'p'). Just remember the Spanish word for it and you'll know the Arabic word for it ;) Sometimes Arabs call it its old name "Al andalos" - that's rare though so no worries :) I don't know who just DV you, that's sad of them.

I thought it was almost the same pronunciation but I wasn't sure so I had to look it up. Also thank you for telling me the "Al andalos"

It's ok, whoever down-voted must have something against Spanish (or it could be a user that doesn't care for me) LOL...Oh well :)
