English term or phrase:Princess
I need to find a way to say princess other then the english form "princess" please help!!
Explanation: The last letter (h : ة) may be pronounced like (ah - aa) or like (t). In the first case we don’t change the pronunciation, but in the second case we must make some changes. we say:
Ameeraton, ameeratan, ameeraten (this depends on the grammatical sequence):
Ameeraton: هي أميرة(he ya ameeraton) (she is a princess)
Ameeratan: رأيت أميرة (ra ayto ameeratan) (I saw a princess)
Ameeraten: رحبت بأميرة (rahabbto be ameeraten) (I welcomed a princess)
The princess: al ameerah الأميرة
Or: al ameerato , alameerata, al ameerati (like tea)
When we want to use a formal term we say:
Somoow (so like sue)al ameerah (something like your highness).
hope this will help.
Explanation: Come to think of it I think maybe Yacine is on the right track. After all the asker says: "I need to find a way to say princess other than the english form "princess"".
What I am suggesting this time is maybe:
ست الكل "Sitt El-Koll" meaning "the lady of them all" or "the best of all ladies".
Is this what you're looking for Tenea?
