Oh more semantics? well we shall see

>If someone understood Arabic, in the slightest, they would understand that all verbs are derived from their 2-4 letter words of origin

Are you for real? 2-4 letter words of origin?

Let me help you: the words in the Arabic language (as well as in al-lugha al-suryaniyya wa al-lugha al-3ibriyya) stem from a THREE letter stem and not from two or four as per your bogus claim. How come you did not know that? and did you flunk in your Arabic language nahw wa qawa3id class?

For the readers our dear Abd Allah is not aware that in the arabic language the root system is only 3 letters so the root KTB we would have

Yaktub or he writes

Yaktubu or they write

Taktub or she writes

kitab or book

maktaba or library

But again it seems that our dear Abd Allah's command of Arabic garmmar is poor

Stay tuned for the rest
