Not "bintike", it must be "bintuki"

I think the accent/dialect in these exercises is Egyptian Arabic, so the 2d person singular endings are -ik- and -ak- , not -ki and -ka, as in MSA.

That confused me for a long time too.

My egyptian friend told me thats the way they talk (bintik) although bintuki would be correct, but according to him people dont use it, at least in egypt

@All:

Thanks a lot! Yes, it should be: هِيَ بنتُكِ ... referring to the standard Arabic grammar.
