PronunciationEdit

PronounEdit

من (min)

  1. I
  2. me
  3. my, mine

North Levantine ArabicEdit

Etymology 1Edit

From Arabic مِن (min, from, of).

PrepositionEdit

من (min, mn, mni)

  1. from
  2. since
  3. of
    تعبت من الحكي
    tʿibti mni l-ḥaki
    I’m tired of talking.
Usage notesEdit
  • The basic pronunciation is min, but the context form is determined by the phonotactical environment. The medial -i- will usually be deleted following vowels (including linking vowels as in the example above).
  • The personal forms are built from the stem minn-, for example منك (minnak, from you). The third-person singular feminine merges with the first-person plural as منا (minna, from her; from us). However, the feminine may also be realized as منها (minha) and the plural occasionally as منِنا (minina, specifically /mɪnina/), to avoid confusion. The latter change is rarer, but can be seen somewhat-more-commonly in analogous dialectical derivations of the stem إن (inn-, that) which is from أنّ rather than إنّ (ʾinn).

  1. since ... was/were; followed by a personal pronoun + و

    min niḥna w-bi-l-madrasi

Etymology 2Edit

From Arabic مَا إنَّ (mā ʾinna).
