"هِيَّ لابِسة تَنّورة."

Translation:She is wearing a skirt.

Is it supposed to sound like "taninura"?


nah the whole sentence is wrong and the text to speech machine did a bad job in spelling the word out

the proper sentence would be: هي تلبس تنورة (using the verb "talbisu": she is wearing) instead of the verbal noun لابسة (wearer "f.") Using the verbal noun here is more like dialectical (Egyptian like) and not Standard Arabic.


It should sound like Tannuura .. and not all arab speaking counties call it that, it's called "jeeba" from french "Jupe" i think
