Pronounciation Confusion

Postby chadawallace8867 » August 2nd, 2010 3:49 am

Hello all,

I just started this a week ago and I'm a raw beginner to Arabic.

I'm trying to figure out a pronunciation discrepancy between what I hear on the Newbie podcasts and the Romanization on the PDF's. For example, in "jawaz safarii" I hear them pronounce an "oo" sound at the end of "jawaz" in Newbie Lesson #8. I've looked at the Arabic vocab/pronunciation key to see if the added sound is because of the "az" placement in the word, but can't seem to make sense of it. Any insight to help clear up the confusion? Thanks!
