    Could you give some examples? (I guess, it's real irregular)

    And what is the thing with the consonant doubling? Like "yefhem" and "yefahhem"? Do they both mean the same thing or two other things?

    Thanks in advance, I know it seems to be a hard theme!
    In my opinion passive voice is pretty easy.These are my examples

    ex:Ali fihim ad-dars=Ali understood the lesson(to make a passive we need to add ,"it" or "in" before the verb

    Then conjugate verb into present so "fihim" in present (he understands) howe yifham (now the second vowel is quite important to create a verb in
    passive )The second vowel is "a" so the passive verb will be

    itfahamor infaham both means the same in EA

    The sentence(always starting with object then passive verb
    Ad-dars itfaham\infaham=The lesson was understood

    ex no 2.

    Fariid fahhim ali ad-dars=Ali explained the lesson to Ali
    Conjugation in present tense "yafahhim"

    ad-dars itfahhim le-Ali=The lesson was explained to Ali

    Hope it is somehow clear

    I swear you've become obnoxious, Hosni Mubarak has left already, this is enough aggravation already, I swear the Egyptian people are a joke..

    I guess this person is saying find something better to do and quit the protesting/demands since Mubarak is gone and that was the "initial" request, although truth be told the initial request was es2at elnezam - down with the WHOLE regime of Mubarak, not just him

    No she's right the Arabic is نظيف and in Egyptian it's pronounced ndeef with a د (soft d) not the hard d ض

    There's actually a word "nazeef" which means bleeding so perhaps that's why this one didn't change, but you will find a few select words in the Egyptian dialect which don't follow the usual rules

    I have been told many times that it is pronouncated by ض concerning this word (it is sounds really emphatic) ,but prephaps we have two different schools
