hi , I am Mohamed "أهلاّ، أنا محمد"

In this lesson, you will learn simple words and how to introduce yourself in Egyptian. First, very simple words are introduced :
English Egyptian Pronouncation
Hi ahlAN ahlan
Welcome marHabAN marHabaa
Bye (literaly means: peace) salaam salaam
Yes aywaa aywaa
No la'a la'a
Thanks SHokrAN shokran
Not at all 3af_wAN afwan
sorry aasef aasef
Now, we want to say the simple phrase (I am Mohamed). We should first mention an important note :
In Egyptian ,and Arabic, if the phrase doesn't contain a verb, the verb (to be) is assumed. So the verb (to be) is almost always omitted. Example : (I am Mohamed) will be in Arabic written like ( I Mohamed ) using the Arabic corresponding translation of each word. Similarly, ( You are Maryam ) will be ( You Maryam), and so on.
Now, the only thing we miss to write the phrase is the translation of (I = ana ), so the phrase will be : (ana Mohamed)
More words are listed below :
English Arabic Pronouncation
I anaa anaa
You (m.) enta enta
You (f.) ente ente
You (pl.) entoo entoo
He howwa howwa
She heyya heyya
They homma homma
We eHnaa eHnaa
The lesson now is done, you can understand the following conversation (it may look short and quite silly, but it's just for explaining :) :
Mohamed : ahlan, ente Jean ?
Maryam : la'a, anaa Maryam.
Mohamed : aasef. anaa Mohamed.
Maryam : enta Mohamed ? ahlan !
Mohamed : aywa, shokran.
Maryam : afwan, salaam.
Mohamed : salaam.
