Addressing Men and Women in Arabic

Video Transcript

''In general, when referring to 'my' in Arabic, you would add an '-ee' to the end of the word. When referring to 'your' in Arabic, be mindful of the addressee's gender. In general, '-ka' will be added to the word when addressing men and '-kee' will be used for women, although this will not always be the case.

''For example, 'ism' means 'name' in Arabic. 'My name'...'ismee.' Add an '-ee' to the end of the word. Your name...'ismuka' if it's a man, 'ismukee' if it's a woman.''
