سُكّان المُدُن الكُبرى


Explanation:
Pronounced: SUKKAN AL-MUDUN AL-KUBRA.

". . ., the metropolitan, educated elite, . . ."

النُخبة المتعلمة من سكان المدن الكبرى
صفوة المتعلمين من سكان المدن الكبرى

Some translators prefer MUTHAQQAF for "educated." That is debatable.

The American Heritage Dictionary gives the following relevant definitions of "metropolitan":

- Of, relating to, or characteristic of a major city

- Of or constituting a large city or urbanized area, including adjacent suburbs and towns.
