Why is it "jari wa jarati" and not "jari wa jari"?

"Jar" is a male neighbor, and "jara" is a female neighbor. When you add the "ي" part to the "jara", it makes the ة of "jara" show the "ت" and you get "jarati"

Neighbor: (Female = جارَتي) (Male = جاري)

My translation was exactly like yours, but it appeared the red colour, for error...
