    Hi Mourad, I like it that you give a little explanation regarding the polite form of address – but, is this a term that would be understood across all the dialects of the middle east? or only in certain places? thanks

  2. Warren.David says:

    Also, could you please clarify when you would use عدد? – would it be for saying something like “a large number of people”?

  3. David – This form of address (HaDritak حضرتَك and Hadritik حضرتِك ) is mostly used in Egyptian Spoken Arabic.

    Please refer to (Alif-Baa) textbook, p. 39 for further explanation.

  4. عدد means “number of ” for example you may say :
    عدد الطلاب في القسم تسعة عشر
    The number of students in the class is 19

    Hi Mourad,
    Can I ask what program you use when you type in the arabic script for the flashcards? I find sometimes that when I type using my computer (or the keyboard provided by the flashcards) for some reason the hyphon produced is slightly different to the one your flashcards want – which means the program thinks my answer is wrong.

    Maybe it’s something to do with my computer in particular, or would it be possible for you to only use commas, brackets and dashes on the flashcards?

  6. I use the flashcard authoring software BYKI. In fact, the same virtual keybpard that appears in the eFlashcard application BYKI.

  7. Nicholson.Elin says:

    Hi Mourad – I’m having problems downloading this list on the BYKI site – could you check it out, please? Shukrun, Elin

  8. Elin – Have you installed the new version of BYKI?
    If you did and you still have problems reading the set – I will email the list to you directly
