Learn the 10 Most Common Words about War in Arabic Posted by on Feb 23, 2016 in Arabic Language, Culture

Marhaba! Though I always try to stay positive about developments in the Middle East, especially the Arab world, it seems clear to almost anyone around the globe that wars, devastation, economic and sociopolitical hardships, bloody revolutions, and gory protests are common, largely unfortunate, aspects of this region. Be it from foreign occupation, intervention, colonialism, or other types of external meddling and influence, most Arab societies have had their fair share of troubles, discord, and cacophony. However, we all need to remain hopeful. On a more positive tone, how about we turn an awful subject into a fun learning lesson? In the recent past, I have shared the 10 most common words about peace in Arabic. Today, I am sharing the 10 most common words about war. Similar to earlier posts, I have added these words in a fun crossword puzzle. As always, I have transliterated all the words so that you can pronounce them accurately. Stay tuned for the answers soon.

About the Author: jesa

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.
