More May 26, 2007

American Arabic terms:
Park:
دقيقة واحدة أبرّك العربية وجاي

check:
ممكن تشَيِّك على الفاتورة تاني

From non other than El-Mahrousa itself:
RJ:
Yes, I am talking about the RJ11 and RJ14 phone and ethernet terminal plugs. Watching the self-made technician from a neighborhood internet cafee talking to a neighbor who has a problem with the clandestine DSL connection he is renting from the "cyber", the technician says:

الأول نأَرَّج الكبل ونجرب تاني

The verb is "arraj", meaning to change the RJ terminals and try again.

Khalast min al-sheqa? Laa, baaqii check-out.. Jun 1, 2007

Greetings to all... taHiyaatii liljamii3...

The use of "Arabish" seems to be growing and growing, much due to the Internet and cell phones.

Examples from Riyadh for addition to the items to this thread:

Yaa Ahmed, khallaSt min al-sheqa?

يا أحمد، خلّصت من الشقة؟

Laa, baaqii check-out...

لا، باقي تشيكاوت
---------------------------------------------------------

The terms for "mall" (as seen in and around Riyadh) include:

1. aswaaq Hadiitha أسواق حديثة

2. aswaaq أسواق

(understood to be a mall -- or a super-mall, in some instances -- by the size and spread of the shopping center which displays that sign)

3. mall (with Arabic spelling as مول )

The "brand names" of the malls are phoneticized into the Arabic, such as Carrefore, Geant, Granada Mall, SedHaan, etc.

Khair, in shaa' Allah.

Regards.

أرَّاجة
the name of the tool which we use to make the RJ plugs.
Believe it or not, I heard the name in a computer store in Cairo.
Have Fun!

I've come across this word a few times in Egypt. It took me a while to understand what it was referring to. It turned out that computer technicians who install software on newly purchased computers are often kind enough to create a folder on your computer in which they place all the سورسات - these are the "source code" files of - very often illegally - installed software!

As far as I know, Nesrin, سورسات refer to the program setup files that you use to install various programs on the computer (Office applications, zipping programs, dictionaries, media players, etc) so that they can be easily reinstalled in case your were forced to remove a disfunctional program or your copy of Windows for whatever reason. They're named so because they're the source from which you can install your programs, and without which you can't reinstall these programs again! . "Source codes" is a totally different term. They're often used in programming contexts and refer to the programming scripts that are then translated into user-friendly interfaces.

I'm no expert as you can tell! I knew it comes from the word "source" and kind of understood it in the way you describe, but I guess my explanation went in a completely different direction. Thanks for clearing that up!

Create(ing), Vacuum(ing) Apr 8, 2008

Asslamu Alikum Every body

While I was in a visit to the bank, found the Customer Support operator says to his colleague, as a reply for her request to help her in something, that he is busy in creating a new account for a new customer, Ana Mosh Fady, Ana Ba Kareet Account Gdeed (أنا مش فاضي؛ أنا بكريت حساب لعميل جديد).

ِAlso, another One:-D:-D
I am working in a pharmaceutical plant in Egypt, and the HVAC Engineer ,(HVAC:Is the Automated system of handling Air inside the plant containing high efficiency air filters for sterile manufacturing) was speaking to his manager that he is doing air vacuuming by saying "E7na Hanvkim Ba3d Shwaya" (أيوة ياريس إحنا هانفكييم بعد شوية).

Be Sure that I will transfer to you the latest updates in the 7alamantesh Glossary in the field, please keep in touch!!

Have a nice day!

Regards,
Ehab
