Spelling vs how it sounds (need help)
Hello. I've heard that arabic sounds like it's spelled. But Duolingo audio phrases always have more "in between words" sounds.
Exemple: Thank you is pronounced "shakrun jazilaan" but it is spelled shkraa jzilaa
Why is there an N at the end of the pronounced version. I can understand the invincible vowels that naturally comes when speaking, but not the N part. Thank you for help
Those N sounds aren't another word.
So basically let's look at your example: شكرا جزيلا Shukran jazeelan
Those -an sounds are from the alif at the end of the words. Both these alifs have a vowel called tanween which makes the -an sounds. ^-^
