Assuming this is something you would say to your landlord upon handing them the month's rent?

Actually the opposite, this is what the landlord would say to you (talking about the amount of his rent).

Yes, I would expect to hear this from a person paying their rent.

The dagger alif doesn't seem to be present on the keyboard I installed (Egypt standard). It's not counted correct with the short a (هَذا) or with no diacritic (هذا). Am I supposed to use the word bank every time I use this word? It's driving me up the wall.

Are you given the option of typing out in Arabic? I only get the 'box selecting' system.


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

I can on desktop, but it may not be an option on mobile.

how do I type "this" in Arabic on my keyboard. haadhaa (h long-a dh long-a) doesn't work? It seems that h dh aa هذا is acceptable sometimes, but not here.

I couldn't find this as a shortcut on my Qwerty keyboard either. On a computer, you can use unicode to get the dagger above the ه I have to change back to GB language (otherwise the numbers come up in arabic and then don't seem to work) Then hold down shift and control and press U - and an underlined U comes up. Then type the unicode for the little dagger, which is 0670 then press space, or enter, and > ٰ

Don't forget the dagger alif!

Where can I find this on the keyboard? In my arabic keyboard (mobile) it doesn't exist.

Long press on a "dot", a window appears with a number of choices for diacritics. First type the letter, then the diacritic.

It is the suffix -i.

This is my"ی" ایجار+ی=my+rent

What's a rent?? Sorry to be stupid. But English ain't my native language. but I haven't found a Bangla to Arabi course. So it's a bit difficult for me


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

Rent (not "a rent" because it is not countable) is the payment for a flat or an apartment.

Also, say "English isn't my native language". Never use the word "ain't" unless you deliberately intend to give the impression that you are uneducated.

supposedly the amount of money offered for a place or something (the amount of rent)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Susan569895

This doesnt really make sense in english.... this is the cost of renting the flat for a month....this is the money for the rent.....
