جَدّة


Explanation:
Pronounced: JADDA. When written in Arabic letters, the word includes the feminine suffix, which is a silent T. This T is not silent when followed by any of the six possible case inflexions (U, UN, A, AN, I, and IN). These inflexions are not used in colloquial Arabic, but are integral to classical Arabic grammar.

I assume your system is correctly configured to display Arabic text. If not, make sure that your browser is the latest version of Microsoft Internet Explorer (version 5 or above), and that you have Arabic Language Support as part of IE installation. To verify, go to Tools/Windows Update, and select the appropriate updates.

Once you have these two elements, you should be able to display Arabic text in your browser. To do so, go to View/Encoding/Other, and select Arabic (Windows). The page will refresh to display Arabic text.

If you have difficulty accomplishing that, let us know, and will do our best to help you.
