Lesson Transcript

Peryhan: Hi everyone, my name is Peryhan and this is Egyptian Arabic weekly words. Well, today’s topic is In Your Wallet. So let’s get started.
بِطاقَةُ اِئتِمان
“Credit card”
And in Egyptian Arabic, we just say it how you say it in English.
كريديت كارد
krīdīt kārd
So, my credit card. Do you have a credit card?
رُخصَةُ قِيَادَة/رخصة سواقة
ruḫṣeh swāʾah
“Driver’s license”
So for example, you can say…
.أنا نسيت رخصة السواقة في البيت
ʾanā nsīt ruḫṣeh el-sewāʾah fī el-bīt.
which means “I forgot my driver’s license at home.”
So for example, you can say…
.في آخر الشهر, مش بيبقى معايا فلوس
fī ʾāḫer el-šahr, meš byebʾā maʿāyā flūs.
which means, “By the end of the month, I don’t have much money left.”
“Egyptian pound”
For example, you can say…
معايا عشرة جنيه.
mʿāyā ʿašrah ǧnīh.
“I have 10 Egyptian pounds.”
محفظة/ مِحفَظَة
“wallet” yeay, yeay, yeay!
For example, you can say...
.محفظتي لونها أحمر
maḥfaẓtī lūnhā ʾaḥmar.
“My wallet is red.”
My wallet. And your wallet?
Okay and so we are done for today. Thank you for watching. Please comment below about the color of your wallet and don’t forget to check the site. Bye bye everyone. My wallet gets stolen.

Hi Austin,

Just make sure to change the suffix on "its color" to the feminine form:

محفظتي لونها بني

ما تعرفيش إيه لون محفظة يجلب فلوس؟ لون أحمر؟ محفظتي لونها بني، ودي دايمًا غير مرتبة، وفي أول الشهر وللا آخر الشهر مش بيبقى فيها فلوس. محدش بيحاول يسرقها.

بتقدر تعيش بدون فلوس لو عندك كريدت كارد.

سواقة بدون رخصة السواقة جريمة ولازم تدفع غرامة.

من الممكن تجيب جنيه ودولار وإنت ما بتشتغلش؟

Hi Tamer,

رخصة سواقة

is the correct term for driving licence in Egyptian Arabic :)

رخصة قيادة

is the same but for Modern Standard Arabic.

ازيك عامله ايه؟

انا عندي سوئل

رحصة السواية is referring to "a driver's license" and الرخصة السواية refers to "The driver's license" right?
