Why does it sound like Bobby? (with an "ee" sound)

I'm wondering the same

JonathanMa198018, eannaoc:

Bobby = بُوْبِّي

I have also heard the same issue in the Full Sentence audio (but, not in the word-to-word). It is incorrect, a fault of the voice. We can report it :))

Why is 'Bob' pronounced 'Pop'? I thought there was no P sound in Arabic. Thank you!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SamirShaker

Because the audio is incorrect. Please report it using the “Report” button next time :-)

Wouldn't the name "Bob" have an Alif/aa instead of the waw/waa/oo sound?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SamirShaker

The reason it doesn't have an Alif/aa sound is that the Arabic version is based on a more French pronunciation of the name Bob, not an English one, which is more of an "oh" sound. The influence of France on Arabic has to do with its history in the area.

How come names and short phrases are suddenly appearing in Alphabet 2 when they aren't covered until Alphabet 3?

    I am giving the right answer but still your are making it wrong


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DBlomgren2

    We have a choice of "Bob Judy", which is considered correct, but the answer should be "Bob and Judy." However, "and" is not included in the word bank. I reported it as "My answer should not be accepted."
