What's the difference between "جارَتي" and "جارَي"?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/EmilioManuel10

The first is "my (female) neigbour" and the second one is "my (male) neighbour". T sound for the first one comes from the tamarbuta in the feminin form of neighbour (جارة)

How would you say 'my amazing neighbour Carrie'?

Switch the second and third word.

Scruffy_Bear, TerminasDeity, LuisDaniel4321:

"My amazing neighbor Carrie" is:

(1)

جارتي الممتازة كري

"jaaratii 2al-mumtaaza karii" -- if we follow Duolingo's style.

(2)

جارتي الرائعةُ كارّي

"jaaratii 2ar-raa2i3atu kaarrii" -- Standard.

How do i know that rhe k sound belongs to carrie and not to the possessive? :(


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Away54

Sophia_Eressea,

The possesive form will be جارتك. It is not easy at the beginning when we should hear the advanced conversationalists say something - because they seem to join the two words together. We should get use to it by practicing more.
