Translation:The engineer's phone number is very weird.
What's the origin of the Arabic word for phone? I was sure it would be the international word for it, but it's clearly not. How come?
Okay, actually even in Hebrew used another classical word to the verb call someone on phone, from the word "connect", and the mobile comes from the word "handy", but everyone calls the noun telephone or just phone, especially when we talk about not only mobile phones. So how come this other word in Arabic, what's the meaning of it's source, origin, the three letter base? I'm very surprised and curious! :)
