The feminine numbers from 3 to 10
In Arabic, we saw in the previous lessons we already knew that there are three numbers situations:
When you want to describe a single situation with a masculine noun, you can use the following construction:
وَاحِدٌ + noun
و طالِبٌ واحِدٌ من مالِيزيا
and one student is from Malaysia.
We know already that in the dual situation, we add the suffix ان or يْن according to the noun case.
و طالِبَانِ من الصِّيْنِ
and two students are from China
Now, we are going to the numbers from 3 to 10. In Arabic, the numbers are called الأعْدَادُ and the counted noun is called مَعْدُودٌ. The number is always at the opposite gender of the counted noun. thus, if the noun is masculine, the number will be feminine. Also, the counted number is plural in the genitive case.
- ثَلَاثَةُ طُلابٍ – three students
- أَرْبَعَةُ طُلَّابٍ – four students
- خَمْسَةُ طُلَّابٍ – five students
- سِتَّةُ طُلَّابٍ – six students
- سَبْعَةُ طُلَّابٍ – seven students
- ثَمَنانِيَةُ طُلَّابٍ – eight students
- تِسْعَةُ طُلَّابٍ – nine students
- عَشَرَةُ طُلَّابٍ – ten students
