Alternative formsEdit

  • على(ʿala) (less common, but not rare, except before the article)

EtymologyEdit

From Arabic عَلَى(ʿalā, on, about) by haplology before the article ال(al-). The short form is still commonest before the article but eventually came to be used in all contexts.

PrepositionEdit

ع (ʿa)

  1. on; upon; onto
  2. about (a topic)
  3. to (a place)
    عم نسافر ع بيروت
    ʿami nsāfir ʿa bayrūt
    We’re travelling to Beirut.

Usage notesEdit

  • In writing, the preposition is usually spelt as an isolated letter, as in the example above. However, it is commonly joined to the article, as in عالبيت (ʿa-l-bayt, to the house; home).
  • The personal forms are built from the stem ʿlay- or ʿalay- as in عليكن(ʿ[a]laykun, on you).
