hi, why is the word بقالك pronounced ba2alak (I speak/ ba'alak) when in the Arabic word there is the letter قا(Qaaf) ? Shukran

Qaaf is a silent letter (lesson 7.7). Also, I think the word for "I speak" is "batkalem".

Ahlan Arif Like Kntlne said, the letter Qaaf is a silent or more guttural sound in the Egyptian dialect. Hope that helps! - Amira
