Ahlan and salaam to all, This forum has really impressed me. Kudos to all for unselfishly sharing your knowledge. I've been lurking at this forum for quite some time, and finally registered to pose a question here. How do you say in MSA the word "quite"? As in, "quite big", or "quite happy." And does Arabic have the English equivalent of "rather," which has the same meaning as "quite", only that it is used in negative context, like "rather far" or "rather difficult." I really appreciate any help anyone can give. Cheers, and have a good day everyone.
