Arabic Grammar....Who wants to help me learn? :)

Maybe someone here can be kind enough to translate this for me. I have used Sureth all my life and no Arabic, but Arabic is actually important too. I would like to learn the grammar, and I used Spanish grammar for all the information I asked for. (for the verbs section it's present, preterit, imperfect, and future) I don't know if Arabic is the same way but you could just tell me. I included [m] and [f] for the first couple but it got really tiring, so if there's a differentiation between male and female please include it.

Btw I know this is a lot and it could probably take a long time for someone to write it, but trust me it'll help a lot and it would just be awesome if someone could take the time to do it for me.


*  Anything that has a [m] and [f] version that I didn?t write please include it *


VERBS
I go [m], I go [f]
You go [m], You go [f]
He goes
She goes
We go
They go

I went
You went
He went
She went
We went
They went

I was going
You were going
He was going
She was going
We were going
They were going

I will go
You will go
He will go
She will go
We will go
They will go


COMMANDS
Go (clean your room)


POSSESIVE ADJECTIVES
My (book)
Your (book)
His (book)
Her (book)
Its (book)

Our (book)
Your (book)
Their (book)
Whose (book)


THANKS FOR YOUR HELP!

Nick, I can help you with this, but couple of questions.

-Which version of Arabic do you want? Iraqi slang or professional written version?
-Also, it would be easier for me to write them in Arabic for you, or do you want everything in English?

It will take me some time to do it for you.

Thank you very much ASHOOR. Well by Iraqi slang do you mean like serious street talk or do people actually use this a lot? I don't really like the "Qay fa7aluky" book kind of Arabic, but I don't want like gangster type slang haha

And it would be much easier for me in English. I learned the Arabic alphabet but it confuses me WAYYY too much. Especially because of how there are sometimes 3 letters that sound the same to me (born and raised in America). It's ok you can take as much time as you need. Thank you so much again.

Nick, haven't forgotten about this yet, just haven't found enough time to be able to sit down and do it all at once. I am hoping this weekend.

Let us do the first part:

VERBS
I go [m], I go [f] = Athhab (for both)
You go [m], You go [f] = Tathhab (for both)
He goes = Yathhab
She goes = Tathbah
We go = Nathbah
They go = Yathhaboun

I went = Thahabtou
You went = Thahabta
He went = Thahaba
She went = Thahabat
We went = Thahabna
They went = Thahabou

I was going = Kunt Thaheb
You were going = Kunta Thaheban
He was going = Kana Thaheban
She was going = Kanat Thaheba
We were going = Kuna Thahebeen
They were going = Kanou Thaheben

I will go = Sa Athhab
You will go = Sa Tathhab
He will go = Sa Yathhab
She will go = Sa Tathhab
We will go = Sa Nathhab
They will go = Sa Yathhaboun


to continue the rest later....

Why don't you wanna learn the fus7a, Nick? You will be able to communicate with many more people by knowing the fus7a dialect. It also makes more sense and it's the version you read and write with  :)

Good question 7ayrutha. It's because I'm only going to be using Arabic with people in San Diego (more specifically mostly Chaldeans). So all of them speak Iraqi Arabic. Fus7a is more for Americans when they want to learn. Plus when I learn Iraqi Arabic it won't be too hard to learn Syrian slang or Lebanese slang after a while.

I understand :)

No fus7a is not for "Americans and newbies only." It's the "proffessional" if you may.

Hmmm... Iraqi slang is kinda of it's own. Far from Lebanese especially.

Yeah but like the more educated I get in Iraqi Arabic the easier it'll be to learn others faster. Fus7a is just kinda embarrassing. In my opinion it's for white ppl trying to learn. I mean if you talk fus7a to an Iraqi person and I am Chaldean it'll just be weird.

hmm.. not really actually. I mean of course the other dialects will get easier but the fus7a will make you learn other Arabic dialects faster. The fus7a is also closer to Sureth imo. The Levantine Arabic dialects such as Syrian, Palestinian, Lebanese and Jordanian kinda differs more from Gulf Arabic dialects than you think. However, i understand you if what you're trying to achieve is to be able to talk Arabic with other Iraqis and Assyrians who speak Iraqi.... not just Arabs in general :)

Shekwanta I like his voice, but I don't like this style of music :/
It reminds me of Saudi Arabia and Khaleej Arabic songs hahahaha


Have you ever heard of Sawsan Najar? Also her name on youtube could be Sawsan Al Najar or Sawsan Kizy. She has a very nice voice (reminds me of a young Juliana Jendo) and she sings Arabic with a better accent. She also has some songs in Sureth too! I love her I think she's Chaldean, but idk what village.
