Is it Bintun or Bint?

actually in this case the nunation does make a difference in meaning. A Syrian girl is 'bintun suuriyah'

The way it is written now (without nunation) translates as 'daughter of Syria' - a different phrase structure (mudhaaf and mudhaaf ilayh)

It should be "bintun" with proper grammar. But the text-to-speech machine is not doing well with these
