Yeas it must be acceptable but for a literal translation:
The United states of america= الولايات المتحدة الأميركية
I know this thing has been around for the a half of course but I guess it's better to ask late than never: what does the voice pronounce between the words "wileye" and "jamile" as well as between "jamile" and "fee"? It sounds like "tin" and I have no idea where it comes from. Can someone please explain?
I'm no native speaker, so I'll just say the little I know until someone comes along and explains it better: In MSA there are endings added to certain words -an, -tan, -'in, -tin, -'un, -tun.
If you see a double fatha or kasra that's the ending I'm talking about, but apparently it is sometimes pronounced even without anything signifying it above or below the letters...
When I learned Arabic in highschool I knew when and where it should be pronouced but those days are long gone.
