Good morning

Post by SoCalledEgyptologist » Wed Sep 06, 2006 8:17 am

I've got my Lonely planet egyptian arabic phrase book in hand and I'm trying to relearn my arabic for when I come back next month! Its terrible, I used to think my arabic was getting kind of ok, but now I've suddenly forgot everything :oops: First 2 weeks in Turkey this summer I was pathetic and couldn't even learn to say thank you (tesekur ederim) because I kept trying to say it in arabic :lol: But then I got hang of it and now all I wanna say is Merhaba ne haber?


Anyway to the point! :mrgreen: I was just reading in the book that if someone says sabah el kher to you (good morning) your supposed to answer sabah en noor??? I've always just replied just sabah el kher back :oops: Is that wrong?


I know some things in that book are different to what people actually do, is this one of those things? Help!

There are a lot of variations of the 'good morning' greeting: sabah al kher, sabah al noor, sabah al full, sabah al eshta and others. People normally answer with an othe version than what you say. But it is not wrong to answer the same thing you are told.
