Introduction
Becky: Welcome to 3-Minute Egyptian Arabic Season 1, Lesson 18 - Possession. In this lesson, you’ll learn how to talk about possession in Egyptian Arabic.
Body
Becky: Here's the way to say 'Do you have a pen?’ when speaking to a man in Egyptian Arabic.
Nora: [Normal] معاك قلم؟(maʿāk 'alam?)
Becky: First is a word meaning 'you have'

Becky: Ok, now let's take a look at the way to say 'Do you have a pen?’ when speaking to a woman.
Nora: [Normal] معاكي قلم؟(maʿākī 'alam?)
Becky: First is a word meaning 'you have'
Nora: [Normal] معاكي [Slow] معاكي (maʿākī)

Cultural Insight
Becky: Now it's time for a quick cultural insight.
Nora: A useful word to know, when you’re being asked if you have something, is beyethayya'lii, which corresponds to "I think so." Use it when you're not sure whether you have the thing in question, but you think you probably do. It can be used in many other situations just like its English equivalent.

Becky: And that’s all for this lesson. Don’t forget to check out the lesson notes, and we’ll see you in the next lesson!
