Appendix talk:Arabic Swadesh list

Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search

For Modern Standard Arabic, still there is not a standard pronunciation.

I think that there should be a Swadesh list available, comparing all dialects/languages within the Arabic macrolanguage dialect continuum, which accounts for the different pronunciations! 18:09, 14 October 2012 (UTC)

Be my guest and create that list. --Anatoli (обсудить/вклад) 22:14, 14 October 2012 (UTC)

I think that this list is out of the standard template for lists with IPA pronunciation IPA template. Is it ok if I change it? Rbstern (talk) 18:22, 2 December 2012 (UTC)

Line 17[edit]

For "all" the Arab. word links to the one for 'to eat"!

The entry for كل is incomplete and only has Egyptian Arabic. The Arabic word for "all", "each" is indeed كل, pronounced "kull". كل is also a form of the standard Arabic verb أكل (ʾákala) - "to eat". --Anatoli (обсудить/вклад) 11:47, 9 December 2012 (UTC)
