Say This Is and Ask What Is This or Is This in Arabic
Edited by Hotelier, Alexander Avdeev, Eng, priya
Hello! Thank you for watching VisiHow! In this tutorial, we'll learn how to say, "This Is..." "Is this?" and, "What is this?" in Arabic. This is the second part of the videos dealing with the feminine form of "this". There are both a masculine and feminine form for the word "this".
The feminine form for "This is" is "hathihi"
It is written with haa, dhaal, and ending haa.
The word for the present tense of "to be" in Arabic is not used as it is implied in the phrase
So, "hathihi" means "this" for a feminine noun or pronoun.
If we want to ask, "Is this..." we would say "ahathihi"
It consists of alif, haa, daal, and haa.
If we want to ask, "What is this?" we can say "maa hathihi" when we refer to something feminine
The phrase will have "maa", followed by the letters haa, daal, and haa. We will leave this for now.
If we want to say, "This is a car"
"A car" is feminine in Arabic. The word is "sayyara". It is spelled as siin, double yaa, alif, ra, and taa marbuuta. "Hathihi sayarra" is "This is a car".
If we want to ask, "Is this a car?" then we will keep "ahathihi" and copy "sayyara" here from the previous step
"Ahathihi sayyara" is "Is this a car?"
This does conclude the tutorial on how to say "This Is..." "Is this?" and, "What is this?" in Arabic for feminine nouns or pronouns. This is the second part. If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions, please leave them in the space below.
