Lesson 14 - الدَّرْسُ الرَّابِعَ عَشَرَ


  • We are still in lesson fourteen of our free Arabic language course. This Arabic course with images and audios will help you learn Arabic.
  • In this part of lesson we will learn a new word: بَعْضٌ meaning "some". This Arabic word follows many of the simple grammatical rules already covered - i.e., it takes double /đammah/ when in nominative case, double /fatħah/ when in accusative case and double /kasrah/ when in genitive case.
  • Similarly when it is annexed to a pronoun it takes a single /đammah/ if appearing in nominative case, single /fatħah/ if appearing in accusative case and single /kasrah/ if appearing in genitive case. Lets take some examples for better understanding of this rule:
