English term or phrase: book
I'm loooking for the word, in arabic script, for an ordinary everyday book, i.e. paper pages between an outer cover.

Although the glossaries have many, many examples of book, many of them refer to specific technical items in Finance or IT, so it is unclear which if any would satisfy the above request.

كتاب
Explanation:
Pronounced KITAB, with a short "I" and a long A (although they refer to it as a "short A" in elementary schools in the US).

I assume you want the modern standard Arabic word.
