مرحباً! إسمي راين و أنا طالب جامعة. أسكن في ماريلاند
This is my first post at the Arabic forum and I thought I'd give a small introduction in addition to a question. I am a student at the University of Maryland University College majoring in English. At the university, I began studying Arabic, too, and want to become fluent. I hope to learn a lot at this forum and become closer to my goal!
My question is very simple. To denote the "possessive" in Arabic, we generally see the letter ي at the end of the word, as in كتابي.
With the word كرسي however, there is already a ي at the end of the word. To write "my chair," would we double the ي and write كرسيي or is there another way?
Like, if I wanted to write the sentence: I found it under my chair.
.___وجدته تحت كرس
Perhaps someone could clear up this confusion. It's nice meeting you all!
I hope my Arabic is not too hard to understand. I've only been studying for a short while! If there are other big mistakes, could you point them out? Thanks!
