Ahlan Amira,
Short is Qasiir (a)
Young is Saghiir (a)
Old is 'Agooz (a)
Heavy is Taqiil (a)
Light is Khafiif (a)

Note: "Q" sound is substituted in collequial by "A" sound. so Qasiir becomes asiir and Tagiil becomes ta'iil and so on. A at the end is for feminine form of adjectives.

Two more adjectives for you:

Expensive is: Ghali (a)
Cheap is: Rakhiis (a)

You are very demanding Amira :) Any more and you will have to pay the webmaster an Egyptian pound for every adjective... Here is goes:

- Much: Kteer Little: Qaliil or Shwayya
- Dark: Dalma Light: Nour
- Colours: Alwan
- High: "3Aali Low: Wati
- Narrow: Dayyek Wide: Wasi3'
- Bad: Wehesh Good: Helw
- Clean: Nedeef Dirty: Wesekh
- Cold: Bared Hot: Sukhn
- Different: mukhtalif
- Difficult: Sa'3ab Easy: Sahl
- Fat: Tekheen Thin: rafee3'
- Opened: Maftouh Closed: ma'foul


These are all slang Cairo-speak and are spoken but not usually written.
Writing is for classical Arabic.
If you want specific words or your name in Arabic script, please post under another topic.

These are typical Egyptian expressions. You must be a resident.

Hadretak is used for addressing a man of high postition respectfully. Something similar to "Vous" in French. You can also use it in the feminine form "hadretik".

Bardo is quolloqial for "also". It can also be used to remonstrate with someone in the expression "kidda bardo?"


Hope that is useful; LE 2 credit for the webmaster... :lol:
