Verbs in Arabic – Past Tense – Pronoun Sentences

leave a comment »

Pronouns (“I”, “you”, etc.) are usually left implicit in Arabic when a verb is present. They may, however, be added for emphasis.

Examples:
درست (darastu): I studied

ولدت (wulidati): You (f) where born

سافر (saafara): He studied

In none of these examples is there an explicit pronoun. However, a pronoun may be added for extra emphasis.

أنت درست (‘anaa darastu): I studied
