Learning Arabic -- The Third Long Vowel


Lesson eleven is regarding the final long vowel which is the letter 'yaa'. This letter corresponds to the kasra and it enhances and emphasises the sound of this vowel just as the 'alif' emphasised the fathha on the preceding letter and the 'waow' emphasised the dhamma on the preceding letter.


As mentioned, the 'yaa' may be mutaharrik itself and thus will not be considered to be a long vowel. Also, it may be without a vowel but preceded by a maftooh letter. In this situation, too, the 'yaa' is not a long vowel. The 'yaa' maddah is that 'yaa' which has no vowel of its own and is preceded by a maksoor letter.


Just as in the previous exercise, the 'yaa' is left empty of symbols. Later we will learn how to show the lack of vowels on a letter.


Please read through the alphabet and click on each entry to hear a demonstration of the pronunciation. Please attempt the exercise which will revise the alphabet, short vowels, and long vowels.
