actually that is qaffa9 not qaffas, and i guess that fayrooz, ihath, NW never heard all these words, all invented at some point after 1990.

It looks like we in Mosul are much more polite than people in Baghdad. I don't know any of these vocabularies. We use: humaar, athwal, sakheef and such stuffs. Nothing like what that man said.

Aunt Naj'

What do humaar, athwal and sakheef mean? It sounds interesting.

#9/11/2004 07:51:00 pm Assalam Aleikom Blogger Aunt Najma

Humaar means donkey
Athwal means fool
Sakheef means silly

Can someone explain these numbers to me?

Is it Arabic words that can't be adequately transliterated otherwise?

Some kind of hip slang that all the cool Iraqi kids are into?

Emigre, I am shocked by the language you have been using lately. You sound so much nicer when you don't speak Iraqi.

As for the numbers, here is what they mean

عين = 3
صاد= 9

clear now?

I don't think Emigre knows Arabic.. I don't know this number's language either.
But there's letters in Arabic that don't excist in English (And that's why I can't give you examples ) So, we use numbers (Or they use numbers) to replace each letter or sound instead of letters.
When did they learn them? How? From where? I don't know..

#9/12/2004 12:28:00 pm Assalam Aleikom Blogger ihath

Like you I hate the number thing. If you gonna write in arabic then write in arabic. I don't like the transliteration in english letters, it seems so weird.

#9/12/2004 04:09:00 pm Assalam Aleikom Blogger emigre

mmm, i tend to agree, arabic script looks beautiful, i find english a bit clunky looking on screen in comparison.

but i can see how substituting characters with numbers would be useful if an arabic script keyboard was unavailable.

Najma ~ you are completely correct. i am not at all fluent in arabic, i only know a few words and seeing as most of what i have picked up is written rather then aural i am not even sure if i am pronouncing it right! (the numbers to Blake is another language, i think Blake understands it and i bet you're smart enough to work it ou7 2 ;)

wow emigre cool!
it took me seconds to encode your writtings, then all n a sudden i started reading it normally, i felt like neo when he started to understand the matrix;)
as for the translation of the words, they are not cursing actualy, let me explain:

nachir: tough

hawasim: means the one who stole thigns from govermental building in th elast war, cause Saddam called the war war of hawasim.

shroogi: refers to poor people from the south, who emigrated from place to place inside iraq, so they dont sure know their origins, and they are usually very poor.

m3aydi: it means low class.

qaffa9: means the one who make scams.

nagari: means thief, but small ones, like who picks pockets and steal small thigns.

and all these words intered daily life after the ninetees, you know e always need to improve ourselves;)

he left out:

ykhayyis: means steal, like i am gona akhayyis something.

feka: means somethign funcky.

6ag: means someone who is so kewl.

and few other words that i cant remember now:)
