I am hearing 'tu' between these words when read as a sentence. Why is this? What is being communicated?
The word امرأة (a woman) is a feminine word that ends in Ta Marbúta ة which is spelled "H" when the word is alone or at the end of the sentence but when it is in the middle of the sentence or its beginning and needs to be moved with a vowel, then H turns to T. I made some longer text if you like to read: https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/33454574
check under the word غاية where I talk about Ta Marbúta and Tanwin (Nunation)
