Listening to a video from Al-kitaab and maha says: a3eesha fee new york. Is this a verbal noun? I'm familiar with the verb a3eesh but I don't think it has an a at the end. To me it sounds like a taa marbuta -> verbal noun. If it is a proper verb I don't understand why it isn't ba3eesh: the textbook tells me that all main verbs *and* (textbook's emphasis) verbs that indicate habitual actions take the b prefix and also why the 'ah' ending.
