the arabic sentence is wrong it should be JadatOUka

But we haven't been taught the declensions! And others, more knowledgeable than myself, dispute that. Apparently, it depends on the dialect.

Why do they dispute that? Isn't it possessive?

That's not what they dispute. They dispute that case endings are used in ordinary Arab speech.
