Another word I am having trouble with (among many...)

Postby Hanna » Tue Feb 10, 2009 3:55 am

HI all
I am trying to read something and I am stuck on this verb:
يتنعجق
I figured this is third person masc present tense of a verb looking like:
تنعجق
which I figured looks like it could come be the (gasp) Form II (تَفَعْلََلَ )of a quadrilateral root like
نعجق
Painfully aware I am getting out of my depth here, I try to find the supposed quadrilateral in a dictionary but no luck. I tried to google forms of it and although I got a number of hits I wasn't able to guess the meaning.
Can anyone help?

Cheers

I am not sure if you have wrote it correctly,, if you let us know the actual sentence where you found this word in that would help.

Hi Ehab

Many thanks for looking at this (I apologise by the way: I seem to have added a "ya" to the verb in my post - when I went back it didn't have it). It's from a poem and the line is

ولا تطالع أوراقي فتنعجق

And the next line, which seems to start a new thought is

يا وجه أمي...أضىء صوتي

Since it's not from a piece of straightforward writing I realise it's not easy. Plus it's just a typescript so there could be typing errors.

شكرا جزيلا

That makes it easier now.

ولا تطالع أوراقي فتنعجق is: don't look into my papers so you would get confused (best translation for تنعجق here is confused)
and the other line يا وجه أمي...أضىء صوتي is: Oh my mother's face.. light my voice.

Sounds interesting poem.. I like poetry :)

Many thanks yet again, Ehab. I am learning a lot (I hope) from working on this poem for a project (it's made up of 22 "'abyat"). I will certainly send it once I have finished the project. Plus you will get a mention in acknowledgements!

If it is not too much trouble, could you tell me the root of the word? I feel frustrated at not being able to find anything in the dictionaries.

Cheers

everyone considers Arabic to be a super harder language to learn. n English-speaking student learning a European language will run across many familiar-looking words, but English-speaking Arabic students are not so lucky.
