Egyptian - correct way to say "time"

benright862

How come I've seen two versions of the word "time?" One is "wa2t" and the other is "mara."

Are both correct.....or perhaps used in different circumstances?

Thanks

Hello benright862

Yes. There are several translations to the word "Time" according to the context.
For example:
One more time = Mara tanya
Two times = Maretein
Three times = Talat marrat
Morning time = Wa2t el sob7
breakfast time= Wa2t el fetar

Regards.
