Arabic Word of the Day 37#
*UGH! Why do I have to retype this lesson again?! Oh wait what?! You've started recording?....Hmmhmm....
*你好 ! Today we're going to continue our food journey, and hopefully we'll be able to finish this today! So yesterday was a trip to the carnivore world, and the day before that was the journey through the land of greens, so today we'll just do the finishing touches! (I'm afraid nice food might be coming up!) so let's begin ...
*Oh wait sorry! :3 I forgot to tell you guys an important word yesterday! "سمك" (Samak) means 'fish' (pl) so make sure to add that to your list!
*Now we may begin ...
*What you might have for dinner or lunch:
*خبز = "Khubz" = Bread
*أرز = "Aruz" = Rice - Originally an Arabic word, then borrowed to make "Arroz", the Spanish word for rice (that's useful for me when learning Spanish ;p)
*معكرونة = "Ma3karona" = Spaghetti/Pasta - Although this is Italian food, it is so good it has reached every corner in the globe! It is very common in some of parts of Arabia so it would be useful to know this word.
*بيتزا = "Bitza" = Pizza - Another Italian popular food! Since you find this almost everywhere in the world, you should know this one! (Luckily, it is pretty much the same pronunciation, just "b" instead of "p" and "tz" instead of double z).
*حساء = "H^asaa' " = Soup - You could say a specific soup using our previous lesson. So if we wanted to say 'tomato soup', we will say "حساء الطماطم " (H^asaa' alt^amaat^im). Remember, "tomato" is "t^amaat^im"! So when we say tomato soup, tomato becomes the adjective and in Arabic, the adjective always goes after the noun!
*سمك و بطاطس = "Samak wa bat^aat^is" = Fish and chips - So all we did here, is take the word for fish (samak) and the word for potato (bat^aat^is) and connected them together with and (wa).
*حبوب الإفطار = "H^uboob al'ift^aar" = Cereal - "H^uboob" means 'grains' and "al'ift^aar" means "the breakfast" so it basically means 'Grains of the Breakfast", which is kinda weird imo
*فطائر = "Fat^aa'ir" = Pancakes
*زبدة = "Zubda" = Butter
*مربى = "Muraba" = Jam
*(عسل) = "3asal" = Honey - Don't kill the bees!... Run away instead ;p
*بيض = "Bayd^" = Eggs
*So if you want to say "bread and butter" or "bread with butter", you would either say "Alkhubz wa alzubda" or "Alkhubz ma3a alzubda". "Ma3a" means 'with'.
*Now to some sugary stuff! :D
*سكاكر = "Sakaakir" = Sweets / Candy OR حلوى = "H^alwa" = Sweets/Dessert <- This one is more common
*شوكولا = <sub>"Shokulaa"</sub> = Chocolate - (Transcription is difficult for this one sorry)
*حلويات = "H^alawiyaat" = Confectionary - Any sweet dish really. Varying from candy to desserts and cake
*كعك = "Ka3k" = Cakes - Sometimes referred to as cookies and biscuits, but mainly used for cakes
*بسكويت = "Baskaweet" = Biscuits (cookies if you're American)
*مثلجات = "Muthalajaat" = Ice cream/ Sundaes
*(علكة) = "3ilka" = Gum (as in the one you chew!)
*Finally we're going to finish of with drinks! :
*ماء = "Maa' " = Water - Although yes, it does sound like the weird sound a sheep makes, please don't start pretending you're a sheep in front of an Arab (like some idiots did in my Arabic class! - I think that's disrespectful... but hey! You could practice using this idea ;p)
*(عصير) = "3as^eer" = Juice - If you want to say Apple Juice for example, you'll say "3as^eer tufaah^", the type of juice after the word "3as^eer"!
*مشروبات غازية = "Mashroobaat ghaaziya" = Soft drinks/Fizzy drinks - "Mashroobaat" means "drinks" and "ghaaziya" means "gassy". Cus you know, when you open a fizzy drink it lets out a fart heheh sorry lol I had to add that
*زبادي = "Zabaadee" = Yogurt - Not really a drink but I didn't know where to add it so...
- Wow that was long! If you can remember all of it then you're a genius! I should make my posts shorter (especially when they don't post hmm hmm! at the end of typing them!!)
*Anyways... Thanks for Reading! Any Qs, Proof-reading, Suggestions, Improvements to be made, then I'm open! Have a Nice Time! :D [this time I'm gonna copy and paste it in case it decides to not post again!]
My favorite foods on this list are probably Khubz and Samak. (Your lesson today has my stomach growling)
What? Bread and fish are you nutz? Oh wait, it's Andres! He probably has never let a Smartie touch his lips XD Don't worry Andres, no more cat-fights in your stomach for a while ;p
LOL, I eat candy sometimes, but I am just not a big fan of it. I’d rather eat bread and fish.
;p It's ok It's ok, just means that there's more left for me :3 I don't enjoy eating bread that much, but I love fish... Not its eyes tho! Ugh
No, I am not on a diet I just like fish and bread LOL
When I say bread I am not talking about loaf/sandwich bread, I am talking about fresh out of the oven baked bread.
الطبخ الشيء الوحيد الذي نجيده غير الأكل و الثرثرة XD
And no, you won't catch me unless you come to England! ;p Wait... Have you ever tried mushrooms? I'm pretty sure they don't grow in N Africa ;p You'll be surprised to know that they don't taste nice! :D
Yes, but maybe they really don't grow here... and you're wrong, they are really tasty, you see? Eliein likes them!
But have you tried them? NO. Haha! well I don't really like them, they're ok on Pizza although I'd rather not have them at all! :D they are not for eating! ... Did you know mushrooms are scavengers, they eat dead matter I think ... You might be next! XD [but I'm an innocent vegetarian mushroom so I only eat other mushrooms]
جيّد، أنا لا أجيد الطبخ حتى، فشلت حتى في سلق البيض!
that's go! so come and get me, I have no money for the trip... AH, remember, I'll stay just few months in your house, not too much because my mum will punish me if I came back late =)
و أنا أيضا! لكن أستطيع سلق البيض على الأقل XD
Lol that's sad cus I have no money either! And mushrooms have no pocket to put their money in anyways! Plus you'll probably freeze on the plane the second it starts reaching Britain atmosphere so you might wanna bring ten pairs of waterproof coats and 20 pairs of fat socks so your feet don't go blue ;p It's sad they have no sock size for tiny mushrooms like me, you might not see me and sit on me instead! XD
I'm going home on holiday this summer, you might be able to catch a taxi ;D
Hmm.. I wanna eat you in England.. all people there are mushroom? HHH don't worry, they'll think I'm an Eskimo ^^
Ah no! If you eat me in England you can have me like and Ice - lollie, if you have me in Algeria you can have me roasted ;p But you have to catch me first human! ;))))))
