YES IT DOES!

It's like saying "close the lights" instead of "turn off the lights". Sometimes Arabic can't be translated directly into English or vice versa, bs shinsawee? That's wat our parents get for putting their kids in bilagual skools. ;P

Wait, there's another one too.. a funny one actually. I can't remember.

October 18, 2007 at 2:40 AM  

haaa? Mino gal it doesn't exist? it exists!

October 18, 2007 at 6:33 AM  

umm it sounds arabic enough for me ...madree

October 18, 2007 at 7:39 AM  

Its our right as kuwaities to make up expressions on the go and incorporate them into our culture, what if it doesn't exist? it makes perfect sense

October 18, 2007 at 7:44 AM  

OMG My mom pointed out the same thing! Hehehe athar kilina chithee? Instead of nisaitai 3ana we're supposed to say "nisaiteeh" . Although I think with time people will start to accept things like nisaitay 3anna like they've accepted ay shayy :D

October 18, 2007 at 9:02 AM  

I totally agree with hamza and kaos! Who cares if it doesn't exist? This is Kuwait, this is how our language changes. We use words in strange ways from different languages, and we eliminate letters and change their pronunciation as we see fit. Sheno "fe yam3a elyom"?! That's not Arabic.. yam3a? Jam3a? Tajamo3? .. bleh.

Kuwaiti language is ever changing and is based on a lot of meaningless stuff. I wanted to post about this a few days ago, but I can't get enough examples..

October 18, 2007 at 9:04 AM  

hell NO, "Minnaak" is nasty too can't stand, Hnaaaaak is the right word

October 18, 2007 at 9:05 AM  

I have the same question! Kila yegolon lee, "Entay wainich? Long time 3anich."

Tell me when you discover! 3ahsan I add it to my dictionary! :D

October 18, 2007 at 10:10 AM  

Maybe it should be nesaiteeha?

Nesaitay 3anha = Forgot about it

heey its ok enshalah u say "esh7alatNi" instead of "esh7alati" that is if you say esh7alati like my cousin :P

October 18, 2007 at 10:56 AM  

you know what we use in bahrain a lot?

ee la!

so someone says, so and so football team won?

October 18, 2007 at 11:07 AM  

No, it does not exist in arabic. :/

October 18, 2007 at 1:36 PM  

نصيحة

اذا بتتكلمون عربي... كتبوا بالعربي
و اذا بالانجليزي كتبوا با و لا الانجليزي

لا تكتبون عربي بحروف لاتينية او العكس

و بعدين ليش عيال المدارس الخاصةلغتهم العربية قواعدها هندية.....؟!؟!؟

عيال خالتي دايما يسئلوني "شرايج (مع انه الشعر طافح عندي بكل مكان)نروح بيت مال احنا.....؟!؟!" ......؟!؟

October 18, 2007 at 5:00 PM

Nisait + Ra7 3an bali = Nisait 3annah.

October 19, 2007 at 2:41 AM  

You know I always use that word and it does exist :D well I'm not sure if we made it up but I think 5la9 it’s a new word that the Arabs made :)

October 19, 2007 at 12:24 PM  

You are correct, it doesn't exist in the arabic language! And you are doing what many have done, translating the english in your head to arabic! loooool!

October 19, 2007 at 1:07 PM  

since we all can understand what u mean, ma3nataaa mabrook il-kelma sa7eee7a =p

Hello
Egypt violated the rights of Sudanese refugees
More than 10000 refugees, mostly in Egyptian prisons
Egyptian authorities have killed more than 100 of them
They resort to Israel to receive the safty of injustice Egyptian authorities, what is happening is a shame in the face of humanity
In my blog was portrayed by the suffering of these
