Masr and Misr

Dan-T2

Hello, Perhaps I missed the lesson on gender, but my question is this. Is the pronounciation of Eqypt in Arabic gender based? I noticed the male pronounces it Masr and the female pronounces it Misr.

Also, thank you very much for the excellent course. I hope for more.

Ah, I think I have found it. The difference is not gender-based, but between Classical and Egyptian Arabic?
