The first words to learn in any language:
Yes = Aywa (eye-wa)
No = La or La-a (there is a hard stop at the end of the La, so it is La’ not Lah)
Common and useful words you are sure to hear, and will like to use:
Mumkin (moom-kin) = Maybe/possibly/Can I/Can you…
Insha-alla = God willing. Used whenever referring to something that has not happened yet. Get used to it, it is probably the most common word in the language.
