qurat khan
ما اسـمُك
Explanation:
Pronounced MA ISMUK (to a male) or MA ISMUKI (to a female). The two words are commonly glided, so that the "I" often disappears in normal speech.

These are the forms used in modern standard Arabic. In contrast, Colloquial Arabic varies according to region. If you happen to be interested in a particular regional dialect, we can help you identify the most idiomatic expression in that dialect. Colloquial expressions range from ISMAK AIH (in Egypt) to SHIGALLAK (Central Arabia).
