10 Uses of the 100 Most Common Words in Arabic Posted by on Feb 26, 2014 in Arabic Language, Grammar

Marhaba! Many of you asked me to provide you with a couple of sentences from my previous post that listed the 100 most commonly used words in Arabic. I think it’s pretty useful to see how these words can be used in a sentence. This will improve your writing skills as well as provide you some basic ways to use these words for your own writing. My plan for the next couple of months is to try to get through most of the words on the list so that you will have multiple examples of sentences. The compilation of these posts will be most useful to you as you begin to learn Arabic, improve your skills, or just have an example of how these words can be used in a sentence.


Today, I am sharing 10 examples of how these words can be used in a sentence. I will provide you with the sentences in Arabic with an English translation. I advise you all to learn the common words, if you have not already, and go over them again even if you know most of them. Think of them as building blocks! I am confident this will give you a huge leg up when writing, reading, and listening to Arabic.

Salam everyone! Born as an American to two originally Arab parents, I have been raised and have spent most of my life in Beirut, Lebanon. I have lived my good times and my bad times in Beirut. I was but a young child when I had to learn to share my toys and food with others as we hid from bombs and fighting during the Lebanese Civil War. I feel my connection to Arabic as both a language and culture is severing and so it is with you, my readers and fellow Arabic lovers, and through you that I wish to reestablish this connection by creating one for you.
