Prasebook creation

I have created this phrasebook to incorporate the different Arabic dialect of the lower Levantine countries (excluding the Lebanese dialect, which interweaves French and Arabic). This phrasebook is a work in progress and, at this time, is only partially complete. I will continue to work on it over the next couple weeks in order to finish it. - Cybjorg 04:16, 17 Feb 2006 (EST)

Please note that some of the words in Arabic do not match with their English equivalents. For example, when asking someone's name, the writer has 'shoo ismik,' which is the correct collquial way of asking, but the accompanying Arabic actually says, 'ma ismik,' which is the more formal way of asking. Someone needs to go through the phrases and make sure the two match up in every case so as to not cause confusion, especially for someone just beginning to learn Arabic. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs)
The above is still a problem, anyone going to try and fix it? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs)
Is there any chance that you could fix it? Our philosophy is: if you see a problem, don't wait for someone else, plunge forward and make the changes yourself! --Peter Talk 12:45, 23 February 2010 (EST)
