Lesson Transcript

Introduction
Becky: Welcome to 3-Minute Egyptian Arabic Season 1, Lesson 19 - Going Without. In this lesson, you’ll learn how to make essential negative statements in Egyptian Arabic.
Body
Becky: Here's the way to say 'I don't have a pen.' in Egyptian Arabic.
Nora: [Normal] مش معايا قلم.(miš maʿāyā 'alam.)
Becky: First is a word meaning 'don't '
Nora: [Normal] مش [Slow] مش (miš)
Becky: Next is the word meaning 'I have (on me now)'
Nora: [Normal] معايا [Slow] معايا(maʿāyā)
Becky: Last is the word meaning 'pen'
Nora: [Normal] قلم [Slow] قلم(alam)
Becky: Listen again to the phrase meaning 'I don't have a pen.'
Nora: [Slow] مش معايا قلم. [Normal] مش معايا قلم.
Becky: Ok, now let's see the way to say 'I don't have time.'
Nora: [Normal] معنديش وقت!(maʿandīš wa't!)
Becky: First is a word meaning 'don't have'
Nora: [Normal] معنديش [Slow] معنديش (maʿandīš)
Becky: Last is the word meaning 'time'
Nora: [Normal] وقت [Slow] وقت(wa't)
Becky: Listen again to the phrase meaning 'I don't have time.'
Nora: [Slow] معنديش وقت! [Normal] معنديش وقت!
Becky: Next up is the way to say 'I don't know.'
Nora: [Normal] معرفش.(maʿrafš.)
Becky: This expression has only one word meaning 'I don't know.'
Nora: [Normal] معرفش [Slow] معرفش(maʿrafš)
Becky: Listen again to the word meaning 'I don't know.'
Nora: [Slow] معرفش. [Normal] معرفش.
Becky: Finally, here is a way to say 'I don't understand.'
Nora: [Normal] مش فاهم.(miš fāhim.)
Becky: First is a word meaning 'no, not'
Nora: [Normal] مش [Slow] مش(miš)
Becky: Last is the word meaning 'I understand'
Nora: [Normal] فاهم [Slow] فاهم(fāhim)
Becky: Listen again to the phrase meaning 'I don't understand.'
Nora: [Slow] مش فاهم. [Normal] مش فاهم.
Cultural Insight
Becky: Now it's time for a quick cultural insight.
Nora: To sound more delicate and caring while saying that you don't have something, such as a tissue, it sounds very natural to answer laa, wallaahi meaning "No, I swear". It implies that you want to help by giving the requested item, but you can't because you just don't have it.

Outro

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!

Let's practice here! Try translating this statement: 'I don't have it.'
