PostSubject: Numbers - Egyptian Arabic   Sat Aug 27, 2011 4:39 pm

Hey everyone! I have been making Egyptian Arabic study guides for myself, and wanted to share one with you today! This guide is written using the English Alphabet, not the Arabic Alphabet. I am currently learning to speak Arabic and have yet to begin writing. I made this to help myself learn to SPEAK Arabic. It includes the Arabic word, the English word, my form of pronunciation (again, I wrote it in a way to help me pronounce the words), and some little helpful notes. I welcome input and love to learn, however, please be gentle with me as I am a beginner. Because this guide is made using English letters, some of the words may be spelled differently than you are used to. All of my Egyptian friends spell every word differently (when writing with the English alphabet)...their rule is spell it like it sounds! And I think this is a GREAT rule for us beginners!

I hope you find this helpful, and you will be speaking and counting numbers in no time! ALSO, my Egyptian fiance checked my study guide, and it passed inspection lol!


Ashley's Egyptian Arabic Guide Smile
Numbers 1-10

Wa7id ..... One 1.........................Wah-hid
Itneyn ..... Two 2........................It-neen
Talata ..... Three 3......................Ta-let-ta
Arba3a ..... Four 4......................Ar-baah
7’amsa ..... Five 5.......................HHom-sa
Sitta ..... Six 6.............................Sit-ta
Sab3a ..... Seven 7......................Sah-baah
Tamanya ..... Eight 8..................Ta-man-ya
Tes3a ..... Nine 9.........................Tess-ah
3ashara ..... Ten 10.....................Ash-har-a


Counting Into The Teens

7idashar ..... Eleven 11...................Hid-are-shar
Itnashar ..... Twelve 12...................It-nosh-ar
Talattashar ..... Thirteen 13............Talla-ta-shar
Arba3tashar ..... Fourteen 14..........Arr-baa-ta-shar
7’amastashar ..... Fifteen 15...........HH-ama-sta-shar
Sittashar ..... Sixteen 16..................Sit-tah-shar
Saba3tashar ..... Seventeen 17........Sah-bah-toe-shar
Tamantashar ..... Eighteen 18..........Tom-aan-tosh-ar
Tes3atashar ..... Nineteen 19...........Tes-aah-tosh-ar


The writing should come easily to you now that you’re familiar with the basic numbers; it’s just a matter of putting the correct two numbers together. As for the pronunciation of the word, you can see that it simply involves taking the basic number (sometimes a slightly modified version of it) and adding ashar to it. This is much like “teen” in English. “Eleven” is the only number from this group that doesn’t use a form of the original number.

Times Tables

3ashara ..... Ten 10..................Aa-sharr-a
3ishereen ..... Twenty 20..........Eye-sh-reen
talateen ..... Thirty 30...............Tell-ah-teen
Arba3een ..... Forty 40.............Ar-baah-een
7’amseen ..... Fifty 50..............HHam-seen
Sitteen ..... Sixty 60..................Sit-teen
Saba3een ..... Seventy 70.........Sah-bah-een
tamaneen ..... Eighty 80............Ta-man-een
Tesa3een ..... Ninety 90............Tess-ah-een


Once again, a pattern that you can apply to all the multiples of ten – just add een to a slightly modified version of the original number.

Miyya ..... One hundred 100......................May-ya
Miteen ..... Two hundred 200.....................Me-teen
Tultumiyya ..... Three hundred 300...........Toll-too-may-ya
Rub3umiyya ..... Four hundred 400...........Roo-baam-A-ya
7’umsumiyya ..... Five hundred 500..........Hh-um-sue-may-ya
Suttumiyya ..... Six hundred 600...............Sue-too-may-ya
Sub3umiyya ..... Seven hundred 700.........Sub-aah-may-ya
Tumnumiyya ..... Eight hundred 800..........Tum-num-A-ya
Tus3umiyya ..... Nine hundred 900............Too-saa-may-ya

For all of the "hundreds", except "two hundred", just add miyya after a modified version of the original number.

Alf ..... One thousand 1,000................Alf
Milyon ..... One Million 1,000,000........Mill-yoon


When a number over twenty is said, it's done by starting with the unit first and the multiple of ten second

Examples:
21 is said wa7id wa 3ishereen (literally one and twenty)
55 is said 7’amsa wa 7’amseen (literally five and fifty)
187 is said miyya saba3a wa tamaneen (literally one hundred seven and eighty)

Thanks Claire and Amber!

And Amber, I wish I spoke as well as a cartoon character Smile I've been told once or twice by my fiance that I speak like a two year old (jokingly, of course...or so he said lol)


I should mention *in case he ever sees this post* Wink that he is very supportive of my learning and says I'm doing a great job hahaha

My husband and I were watching an Egyptian cartoon in Arabic the other day. Sounded just like you Amber! Wink

Seriously though, it was funny because my husband was astonished that everything in the cartoon looked like America, not Egypt. The kid had a skateboard, a baseball cap, a room to himself with lots of toys that they don't even have in Egypt. Maybe it was wishful thinking, but we were bummed that it didn't portray Egypt in the slightest.
