  1. FATADIN ANWAR-HUSSEN NAGUIB:

    I would like to have a comprehensive list ” PARTS OF THE BODY “

  2. Mats:

    I enjoy reading your blog very much, but I find that I need to look the words up to know the vowels. Would it be possible to add either حركات or romanization?

  3. Aziza:

    Ahlan Fatadin,
    Thank you very much for your comment. A comprehensive list would be too long for a blog entry, but in the future, I can provide a more detailed list for sections like head, limbs, etc.
    Salam,
    Aziza

  4. Aziza:

    Ahlan Mats,
    I can fully understand that you may find it difficult to read words correctly without vowelling, and I will do my best to add it in the future.
    Salam,
    Aziza

  5. Juan:

    I fully agree with Mats,
    I was writting the same comment when I noticed that Mats already requested the same and that Ariza replied, thanks Ariza for that.

    For people like me that are trying to learn the language as a “hobbie” and likely not attending classes, the current format of the blog is very appropriate.

    If the posts were longer, it would make them boring and honestly, if you see a long list of words that you do not know you will probably make no effort to learn them all.

    If the list is short, I can “give a try” and I am sure that I will remember more at the end.

    As possible topics for future posts, I would ask for tematic or common use verb lists (past/present and masdar).

    There are already posts on verbs and masdar, I know. I just found them useful.
