ar-noun (ar-noun?


The following documentation is located at Template:ar-noun/documentation. [edit]

This template is for displaying the headword line of Arabic common nouns. See also {{ar-proper noun}}, {{ar-coll-noun}}, {{ar-sing-noun}}, {{ar-adj}}, {{ar-nisba}}.

Please note that the pronunciation of borrowed nouns often doesn't match their spelling, in that short vowels are often spelled as long vowels to aid in pronunciation. Furthermore, pronunciation of borrowed nouns often includes short and long e and o, which cannot be indicated using diacritics. Hence, it may not be possible to adequately specify the pronunciation of a borrowed noun using vowel diacritics, and it may also be necessary to explicitly specify a transliteration. Examples are كيروسين kirusīn "kerosene", where short i and u are spelled with long vowels, and كلوروفورم klōrofōrm "chloroform", where a spelled long و (ū) stands variously for short o and long ō.

Usage[edit]
