Lesson 17 - الدَّرْسُ السَّابِعَ عَشَرَ

Continued

  • We are still in lesson seventeen of our free Arabic language course. This Arabic course with images and audios will help you learn Arabic.
  • We have already learnt in Lesson 13 section 7 that the Broken Plural is the plural form of a word in which the original form of the word is changed to a great extent:
    • E.g.: Some examples of English nouns as broken plurals are:
      • Man  ======> Men
      • Woman ======> Women
    • In contrast with sound plurals:
      • Book  ======> Books
      • Door  ======> Doors
  • For Arabic Nouns and Adjectives:
    • There are more than twenty patterns of the broken plural for Arabic Nouns and Adjectives. We have learned some of them in previous lessons and will learn one more pattern in this part of lesson In-Shā’-Allâh (God willing).
