oomi meaning mother- where is the symbol to tell me that the first letter is pronounced oo? I don't remember what it is called but I expected to see the script letter for lower case e on top and not the hamza...
It should be pronounced like: Ommee or Ommey
Omm meaning mother
"ee", or "ey" (ي): for my (in my mother)
The "Shadda" is actually on the "meem" letter (م). That's why the "m" is pronounced twice.
'ommii' is one word (my mother - the first person being singular)
'ommeyy' is another word with a different meaning (adjective to mean 'illiterate' - singular masculine)
They are not the same.
Should it be really 'ommi' (my mother) instead of "ummi'? I can hear strictly sound 'u' at the beginning of امي
It's ummi. Some people just write the transliteration differently. I guess there are multiple conventions.
Thanks for the quick and clear answer
