I don't understand why "pretty" always sounds like janeed when it looks like it should be pronounced jameel
why is there an extra sound after ism and jameel? ismou and jamelou?
could not hear any extra sounds
In English phrase "what a pretty name" to reset in response to learning somebody's name. Would a similar phrase make sense in Arabic, if we just put ما at the start of the sentence?
not quite. ما اجمل الاسم
but if you ask me, directly out of the box "!اسم جميل" with an exclamation at the end, really means "what a pretty name!"
