  5. "Your neighbor Omar is a doct…

"Your neighbor Omar is a doctor, George."

Translation:جارَك عُمَر دُكْتور يا جورْج.

November 4, 2019



ما الفرق بين جارَك وجارِك في الرفع؟ الصحيح هو جارُك لأنه مرفوع، أليس كذلك؟


Duo uses dialectal possessive suffixes/pronouns. It's جارَك when you are talking to a man about his (male) neighbour, and جارِك when talking to a woman about her (male) neighbour. MSA would use جارُكَ and جارُكِ . AFAICT there are some variations, e.g. -uk without the final vowel can be used, but I'm not too sure about that.

(Correct me if I'm wrong, I'm no expert)


Yes, in the daily conversation, it's often be spelled as "Jaaruk".

Note: the standard grammar or quranic version should be preferred :((


It must be جارُك.


Yes, you're right!
