Hello,

Do any Pittie-witties speak Arabic, by any chance? And none of this "second language" bollocks, I want proper learnt-from-birth native speakers.

I need some grammaticality judgements for a linguistics assignment. I don't mean to brag, but if we do this right, we may revolutionise how people see quantifier float for ever and ever. Quantifier float, bitches. It's a thing.

Seriously, none of my friends speak Arabic and I really need someone to help me.

Thaaaaanks
Hahahahahahahahahah hahahaha har har har

Probably a good thing, since you shouldn't brag about something you need to ask the pit for help to accomplish.

A)No. I only speak the language. I cannot read/write much in Arabic
B)What for?

If I were to give you a sentence, would you be able to tell me if it was grammatical or not?

I've got a couple of roman-alphabet-ised Arabic sentences, and I need to know what they mean:

- ra'aitu l-awlad-a kul-a-hum

aaaand

- ra'aitu l-awlad-a kul-an

any clues???
Hahahahahahahahahah hahahaha har har har

I'm pretty sure they both mean 'I saw all the boys'. Second one looks more gramatically correct than the first but they're both fine I guess.

About 85 percent sure I'm right
