Isn't it like "what is the news"?
It literally is, but in use it is more like "what's up?" or "how are things?"
You can say also "شوفي مافي؟؟" بالعامية
Yes you can i actually speek arabic
Why does it need to be THE news? Can't you say "what's new", without THE?
Is أَخْبار wrong in this case?
and without the final s.
Where does ما come from? Is it proper Arabic?
Yes it is ما is like saying no
Doesn't it mean great or big and not new ? Like in Allah akhbaar
But isn't it "Allah akbar", not akhbaar? The second letter is a ك after all, not a خ, and there is no alif, it's only a fatha on the ب , right?
