Can someone tell me if I understood it right ? the first word (Shadi) is composed by the following letters : "sheen - aa - daal - yaa" . the second word (doctor) is : "daal * - kaa - yaa - thaa - raa" - * ( daal has haraka damma on it which gives short u sound, right?) . then the third word (Syrian) is : "seen - waa - raa - yaa * " . * (can someone explain me which haraka is the one I see on the last "yaa" ?) thanks ^_^
(1) "can someone tell me if I understood it right?"
To simplify the matter, it is:
شادي => ش - ا - د - ي
(shin - alif - daal - ya)
دكتور => د - ك - ت - و - ر
(daal - kaf - ta - wawu "wa" - ra)
سوريّ => س - و - ر - ي
(sin - wawu "wa" - ra - ya)
(2) "daal has haraka damma on it which gives short u sound, right?"
Yes, you're right -- numero uno! دُ is "du".
(3) "can someone explain me which haraka is the one I see on the last "yaa"?"
It is called as "shadda" or "tashdiid", which makes a double consonant sounds. So, here " y" ي becomes "yy" يّ.
(4) "Thanks ^_^"
Non menzionarlo! ≧﹏≦
(5) "... but may b in arabic syria is pronounced as suri"
It is "suuriyy" which means "Syrian". Whilst, "Syria" is سوريا "suuriyaa".
Hope it helps :))
