Make the Definite Article in Arabic
Edited by Hotelier, priya, Eng
Hello, and thank you for watching VisiHow. In today's tutorial, we will learn how to make the definite article in the Arabic language. If you're a non-native speaker, and you've always wanted to say, "the dog" in Arabic (as opposed to just "dog" or "a dog"), we're going to teach you how to do that today.
- 4The word for house is "bayt", which is spelled baa-yaa-taa. We will fully vowel these for our language learners. As a note, the Arabic language is not typically written with all of the vowels. There may only be some vowels for clarification. A native or fluent speaker will be able to read and understand these words perfectly, but for a person who is just learning Arabic, it's very helpful to have all of the vowels written in so we can get used to how they look, and how to read the language correctly.
- 14"Al" will be placed before each of these words, but when we are placing "al" before, we need to remove tanween. A word cannot have both "al" and tanween. In the case of "baab", it will have a single, regular dammah if it is nominative case. We will keep the words in nominative case for this exercise.
- 19This concludes our tutorial today on how to use the definite article "al" in Arabic language. If you have any questions, comments or suggestions, please leave them in the space below.
