    Hello! In the sentences below "an" introduces a conjunctive and "anna" a complement. Which words stand for them in Tunisian dialect?
    Quul lahum an iakhrujuu - Hum ias'aluna an tukhbirahum
    Hwa qaala innaha/annaha maatat
    Adhunnu anna zaujataka latifa
    Thank you in advance

    Tunisian Arabic grammar is totally different to MSA grammar. You can't simply replace one element.
    Quul lahum an iakhrujuu = Qulilhom yukhrju (an disappears)
    Hum ias'aluna an tukhbirahum = Ihebbouk tqulilhom (an disappears)
    Hwa qaala innaha/annaha maatat = Qal illi hiyya maatit (annaha = illi)
    Adhunnu anna zaujataka latifa = fi baali martik hiyya latifa (anna disappears)
