  • how to say "let me ...."

    السلام عليكم

    Imagine I am talking to someone and he asks me "Did you get my email?" I will say "let me check" and then I will check my phone for his email. So in this sense how will say in arabic:

    Let me check ... (my email)
    Let me ... (decide)
    Let me ... (go and call you from there)
    Let me ... (pay you first)

    so you can see that it has many uses and meaning might change slightly.

    What is the equivalent expression in arabic. WIll it be as same expression like English or will vary?

    Thanks

    :wswrwb:

    It's most close equivalence is "khalleeny"

    So

    Let me check: khalleeny shoof
    Let me decide: khalleeny qarer
    Let me go and call you from there: khalleeny roo7 w kalmak min honak
    Let me pay you first: khalleeny idfa3lak bil2awwal

        وعليكم السلام

        In standard Arabic:
        if you talk to a single person (male):
        let me check: da3ni atafaqqad دعني أتفقّد
        let me decide: da3ni uqarrir دعني أقرّر
        let me go and call you from there: da3ni adhhabu fa-ukallimuka min hunaak دعني أذهب فأكلمك من هناك
        let me pay you first: da3ni adfa3u laka (maalaka, ujrataka ...) awwalan دعني أدفع لك (مالك، أجرتك..) أوّلا

        to a female you say "da3eeni" دعيني , to a group: " da3ooni" دعوني ...
        the translation of "you" also depends on the gender and the number
