Arabic[edit]

Etymology 1[edit]

Pronunciation[edit]

Letter[edit]

م / مـ‍ / ـ‍م‍ـ / ـ‍م (mīm)

  1. the twenty-fourth letter of the Arabic alphabet. It is preceded by ل (l) and followed by ن (n)

Symbol[edit]

م / مـ‍ / ـ‍م‍ـ / ـ‍م (mīm)

  1. the thirteenth letter in traditional abjad order, which is used in place of numerals for list numbering (abjad numerals). It is preceded by ل (l) and followed by ن (n).

Etymology 2[edit]

From Proto-Semitic. Sometimes thought to be derived from the pronouns present in Arabic مَا (), Hebrew מה (, what), and مَن (man), מי (, who), so that, for example, مُدَرِّس (mudarris, teacher) is originally من يُدَرِّس (man yudarris, he who teaches). Compare also Arabic مَكْتُوب (maktūb) versus Hebrew כתוב (kāṯūḇ), both meaning “written”, with prefix in Arabic, but without in Hebrew.

Prefix[edit]
