UAE Dialect Reference?

Heya!

I've spent a lot of time on other platforms learning Arabic, and now here as well but always in standard Arabic.

Anyone with experience with UAE Dialect, could you give me some of the most common changes you are aware of in UAE, and some of the most commons words too that are unique to that dialect?

Thanks!

They always turn the letter ج to ي Example: in standard Arabic: جبل in UAE: يبل

they use this letter گ instead of the letter ق Example: SA: قبل UAE: گبل

also they use this letter چ instead of the letter ش Example: SA: شاي UAE: چاي
