What is the root of تَعْرِيْف?
عَرَفَ (to know)
عَرَّفَ (to acquaint)
The second one.
Thank you, can you also tell me if I wanted to say "articles" do I say (أَدَوات التَّعْرِيْف) or (أَدَوات التَّعْرِيْفَاْت)?
The correct one is: "أَدَوات التَّعْرِيْف"
You may want to open a thread about what a root is, because you are confusing roots with verbs. I have noticed this in a few other threads as well.
I thought most Arabic roots are indeed verbs, hence they are verbal nouns, meaning nouns that are derived from verbs!
عَرَّفَ على وزن فَعَّلَ - وتَعْرِيف على وزن تَفْعِيل
Yes but عرّف and عرف have the same root. So when you ask the question "What is the root of تعريف" the answer is still ع ر ف.
Separate names with a comma.
