Arabic Grammar Notes – Chapter 1: Al Jumlatul mufeedah

17 Sep

Jumlah (= sentence)

Al Jumlatul Mufeedah:

  • conveys a complete, self contained meaning
  • is composed of two or more words

What about one word commands such as Ijlis (sit!)? Is this a jumlatul mufeedah as it only contains one word?

This is considered a jumlatul mufeedah because although it appears to be a one word sentence, in actuality, it is two words.  Ijlis (which is pronounced) and anta (you) which is not written/pronounced but is understood by the listener.


If you have the book, here are the directions for the drills for this chapter: (they are not verbatim, but my own words)

1. Read the previous examples, and tell the number of words in each example (sentence).

2. Read the following sentences and tell which are the words in each one.

3. Distinguish which sentences are jumal al mufeedah in the following compositions.

4. Make each of the examples of the following examples,  a jumlatul mufeedah by putting an appropriate word in the blank space.

5. Put each of the following words into a jumlatul mufeedah composed of two words.

Put each of the following words in to a jumlatul mufeedah composed of three or more words

6. Write three sentences, each one of them composed of two words; and three composed of three words, then three sentences composed of four words.

      What are the ages of the children you are teaching?
      Are they learning color word recognition or just recognition of colors by sight?
      How long do you have for this unit? (# days or sessions?)
