Translation:Bob and Judy
Why is 'Bob' pronounced 'Pop'? I thought there was no P sound in Arabic. Thank you!
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?
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.
These kinds of exercises where you type in the English aren't working on the Android App for me. Anyone else experiencing this?
