Grammer: Short Arabic Vowels & Marks

$4.99

There are 6 vowels in the Arabic alphabet, 3 short and 3 long vowels. The short vowel marks add sound to the letters similar to the English alphabet.

          Short Vowel Marks:

  • Fathah ( َ  ): A short diagonal stroke above the letter creating an "a" sound, like the 'a' in bath. For example: letter ب  is pronounced 'b + a =  ba.'
  • Kasra ( ِ  ): The same dash but written below the letter creating an 'i' sound, like the 'i' in sit. For example: letter ب is pronounced 'b + i = bi.'
  • Damma ( ُ  ): A looped symbol above the letter creating an 'u' sound, like the 'u' in put.  For example: letter ب is pronounced 'b + u = bu or boo.'

 

Once your child understands these short vowel marks, you can move on to the  Sukoon and Shaddah marks.

 

  • Sukoon  ( ْ  ): A small circle above a letter. It indicates the absence of a short vowel.  
  • Shaddah ( ّ  ): A small 'w' above the letter. It  represents the doubling of a consonant
