    How do you say "afro"? I seem to remember some of my friends telling me it was like "kisha". MSA it seems to just be "al-afro". Quite different :)

    I have the same question for Egyptian Arabic and Hejazi Arabic.

    In NA and HA, and anywhere in SA I believe (including GA spoken within the country), the word would be كدش pronounced as it's written (kadash). Elsewhere in the GCC we'll have to wait for native members to reply.
