How to greet people


The general way to make a person happy or his/her day good is by greeting them. The people in Dubai usually greet one another in Arabic as “as-salam Alaykum” to which the later always greets back by saying “Wa Alaykum as-salam”. The meaning of the above is “Peace be upon you”. You can also address the people by casually saying Salam or Halla which is the local slang for hello. There’s also a high possibility that once you land onto Dubai you will be greeted with Marhaba or welcomed with Ahlan. The conversations usually don’t end there right? Do you definitely go onto asking them how they are? Well, the phrase ‘how are you’ is kayf halak (man) and kayfa halik (to a woman). Lastly comes the sad goodbyes which are ma’a as-salamah translating to “go with peace”

Frequently used phrases on a daily basis


These are phrases that one might use when one visits the local markets like the Aziz saffron or Dubai Flea market wanting to interact with the local vendors. You could use kam yukalif? (how much does it cost) and the basic yes or no phrases which are “na’am” and “la”. The other phrases such as Please would be min fadlak while addressing a man and min fadlik for women. While addressing people in Arabic there are different phrases used depending upon the gender.

De of het termijn
Waar de Engelsen perfect tevreden zijn met slechts één bepaald lidwoord (the), moeten de Nederlanders kiezen tussen twee lidwoorden: de en het. Erg onhandig, inderdaad. Vroeger hadden de Nederlanders zelfs drie bepaalde lidwoorden, net als in het Duits. Het kan dus altijd nog erger zijn. Wat heeft het dan voor zin om twee verschillende lidwoorden te gebruiken? Eerlijk gezegd heeft het geen zin. Er is ook geen duidelijke regel om te bepalen welke zelfstandige naamwoorden het als lidwoord krijgen en welke de. Helaas moeten niet-moedertaalsprekers het gewoon accepteren en de de en het zelfstandig naamwoorden uit hun hoofd leren. Aan de andere kant hebben we alleen te maken met kleine, eenduidige woorden. Als je ze een beetje onbegrijpelijk mompelt, zal niemand je fouten opmerken. Weet jij eigenlijk of het de of het termijn is? https://webwoordenboek.nl/termijn De-woorden: Enkelvoud: de man Meervoud: de mannen Het-woorden: Enkelvoud: het huis Meervoud: de huizen Vroeger had elk geslacht zijn eigen lidwoord: mannelijk, vrouwelijk en onzijdig. In het moderne Nederlands is het onderscheid tussen vrouwelijke en mannelijke lidwoorden verdwenen: Je gebruikt bij allebei de. Door de emancipatie van vrouwelijke en mannelijke lidwoorden heeft het geen zin meer om over het geslacht van de lidwoorden te praten. In plaats daarvan hebben we het gewoon over de en het zelfstandig naamwoord, waarbij het natuurlijk het artikel van een onzijdig zelfstandig naamwoord is.

Over the River and Through the Woods
Instead of going to just another amusement park or another social event, why can't we just to northern Cali, Oregon and camp? Walk the nearby towns, hand in hand with no cell phones? Why can't we go hiking or take a trail to a hidden waterfall and spend the day reading and tanning/relaxing together? Spend the nights cuddled up in front of a camp fire and stare up at the stars? Don't even have to talk. Just feel each other's body language. There's so much communication that's silent. Or if we do talk, talk about anything and everything. Tell me your fears. Tell me your insecurities. Tell me what you love about me. Tell me how I can love you better. Tell me everything you want to accomplish. Tell me everything you wish was real. Where did everything fall apart? Tell me why you can't open up anymore? Tell me you love me and you'll never leave.... It'll be our own little world. We can build it anew, just us two, even if it's just for a few hours. I'm extremely surprised and saddened by how many people have never seen an unmolested sky. You need to take it upon yourself to travel for away from all cities, away from small towns, into the small pockets of pure nature and just sit there for a night. Listen to it. Look up and see how small we really are. Look up and see the universe on display. Stars galore. It's quite breathtaking and humbling and relaxing and beautiful. It's easily the best and most enjoyable way to calm yourself down and regain clarify of thought.
