in response to reader comment: Your are in Denial Amin

I am amused that you revert to the Taqiyya tactic of when confronted by supported facts by calling the lies instead of proving they are lies.

It was you who carried on calling laser lazer.... then claiming you intended to use the word lazer.... where as your objective was to test if Arabic had scientific words... Even now you have not accounted for the lie? And I have called you out on it too.

That makes you the liar. And which facts did you present? None.

It was one simple question and you have not been able to answer or account for it. That is what come from HATE.

That is all what Robert Spence and his myths are HATE.

I will give you and example how it words You claimed Also the word "laser" is not known to be used as an adjective.

That is not the primary function of the word. My response using Taqiyya would be You lie, you are ignorant.

The word "laser" its primary function is NOT to be an adjective - any linguist will tell you that. The word was created to mean:

I claim to be linguist not you. This has nothing to do with BS Robert Spencer has spun.

But and honest reply is No you are wrong, laser is more commonly used as a adjective in everyday use. Have you not heard of laser light, laser cut, laser pen, laser edge, laser scalpel, laser surgery? Now can you see the difference Amin?

But you confirm what I say....... "laser surgery" is a compound, nomenclature.

This is simple matter of linguistics. This word for example is different from words such as cold, fat, thin, mellow and etc. These words exist to qualify other nouns. For example fat man, thin ice and etc.

In contrast the word "laser" its primary function is not to be an adjective. Compare to the above the word laser has very limited usage as an adjective. Where the word "cold" many.

Take the word lion... its primary meaning is name for a particular animal - yet it is also used is limited capacity an adjective to mean bravery.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adjective

Learn the difference.

"In grammar, an adjective is a 'describing' word; the main syntactic role of which is to qualify a noun or noun phrase, giving more information about the object signified."

That is the difference.... between actually knowing something and pretending to know. Languages, linguistics is my field. You have already said you don't know much at all about this field. I will win EVERY time by default.

For example I do not know that much about engineering .... yet if develop a bullshit theory and took it up against engineers - I would be ripped to shreds. Yet you fail to realize this simple stupidity of yours... but heap Ignorance upon Ignorance.

Your idiotic thought was Arabic does not have these words at all - I gave you the words - then you sought help of translators and made that an issue - I solved that for you.... and now this. The deeper you go the sillier you will appear wit this non-sense.

Yet your initials question remains..... How is Arabic a weak language. And from countless scholars ... who else supports this view.

You have read Robert Spence a bit... and EVEN he doesn't.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Not only did you claim knowledge that I have easily proved wrong, you did so in a way that shows ... because the primary usage of laser is as an adjective which I have clearly demonstrated.

You sink further and further into you own ignorance. You did not claim to be expert into languages .... yet here you lie outright? Why this stupidity?

http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/laser

No English dictionary will list the word laser primarily as an adjective. Why?

Here is your lie laid bare ..... fully exposed. It was PATHETIC to claim the word laser is an adjective.

http://ptonline.aip.org/journals/doc/PHTOAD-ft/vol_60/iss_8/49_1.shtml?bypassSSO=1

Nowhere in that article does the writer ONCE refer to Arabic as a weak language. And even then you relied on a Pakistani Muslim Physics professor.... He confirms what I have been saying.

"The Arabic language held sway in an age that created algebra, elucidated principles of optics, established the body's circulation of blood, named stars, and created universities."

Nowhere does he claim that Arabic has to be changed or left ..... or anything of the sort.

So which evidence is it that you presented?

You spent a large paragraph on petty insults.... yet could not bring a single glorified Western scholar who calls Arabic language weak.

I gave you names of several scholars to the contrary ... yet I don't here anything back.

I asked you to list me a single lie - so far you have not even managed that....... other than doing what you are good at - making baseless claims.

Submitting....
