  • The sentence Game - For beginners

    Thread is in connection with the word translation thread, where beginners can use the arabic words from the word translation thread to make sentences in this thread.

    I'll start:

    Ana dhahaba ila al dukkan - I went to the shop.

      you don't need ana in a sentence like this, because if you use the first person past of dhahaba ( you have the 3rd person past, what you are saying is "I he went to the shop" ) - dhahabtu - this actually is "I went" even though its just one word...

      you say "dhahabtu ila al dukkan"

      dhahabtu = I went
      dhahabta = you went (speaking to a male)
      dhahabti = you went (speaking to a female)
      dhahaba = he went
      dhahabat = she went

      also ila and al get squished together when you speak so you say it like "ilal" and as d is a sun letter you don't say the L either so it sounds like "iladdukkan"

      keep practicing the vocab though :up: do you have someone to help you with pronunciation?

        Jazak'Allah sis.

        Nope, don't have anyone to help me with my pronunciation.

        dhahabtu Madrassa - I went Madrassa (yeh?)

        Malakatu (?) dukkan - I own a Madrassa

          dhahabtu ila al madrasa = I went to the school
          dhahabtu ila madrasa = I went to a school

          dh is pronounced like the th in this, that and the

          dhahabtu is pronounced like "the hab 2" (said alltogether without gaps and in standard british English)

          dhakiyya is pronounced like "the keeya" :up: (standard british english)

          madrassa is prounounced like madras (the city and the curry) + a on the end

          malaktu is in past tense so would be owned rather than own. I own would be (I think) amlak or thereabouts (dunno if malaka is the best word for "to own" I think its quite archaic????? anna would know....)

            firstly, as dhakiyya explained when you take a verb (doing word) you had to change the ending according to who did the action, so you have to say

            dhahabtu = I went

            when you use the word dhahaba, you have to follow it with " ila" so it becomes I went TO the shop.

            as for I own... you dont use the verb malaka. That is the actual word to mean "own" but in Arabic you say "lee" then the item you own, it is a different structure than english. Literally it is like "for me is a car" :S

            eg....

            lee sayyara
            lee bayt
            lee ukht

            etc

            dhakiyya as 4 you... ur sentence should be

            ishteraytu kilo mawz wa lakinnahu lam yakun jayyidan

            hav 2 admit i am not sure of the gender of mawz, because it is a collective noun :S which in meaning is like plural... but in grammar i dnt know?? so if it is treated feminine from being plural, then lakinnahaa lam takun, but still u see the main changes i did :p

Be brothers' (Sahih Bukhari)

                  you would say fa'r wahid (for some reason "one" comes after the noun but other numbers don't)

                  likewise it would be khuroof wahid and faqt usually comes at the end, but I don't think you need it in this sentence because wahid implies only one.... and I think you would say 3andhu khuroof faqt meaning only one (cause if it was two sheep it would be khuroofayn and more than two it would be a plural but @ arabic plurals because they're nearly all irregular)

                  Anna can say which phrase would be best for this, or whether "khuruuf waahid faqt" is okay after all :)

                    it is ok to say khuroof waahid faqat, but this is only if you are emphasising the fact that he has ONLY ONE, if u just mean it like "he has one sheep, as is "a sheep" it suffices to say khuroof and that will mean "one sheep"
