True, but based on the way I've seen you respond to date, I'm willing to bet that I have far more expertise than you.Originally Posted by menj
I was enrolled in Koranic Analysis Studies for 2 hours/day, 5 days/week for 16 years. I am what Muslims would call a Hafiza.
Those studies do not include the 3 hours/day (everyday) spent dissecting both classical and modern Arabic language at Arabic schools between the ages of 5 and 16, as well as under private tutelage when my parents were busy dragging us around the world.
Finally, I have done Arabic translation professionally for both historic texts and modern ones.
I'd say that would make me more of an expert than most people.
I see you are grasping for straws. The Koran revolutionized it 1400 years ago. You appear to be neglecting the fact that the Koran is not accepted in a translated state.Originally Posted by menj
It's a well known fact that Arabic has evolved minimally in comparison to other languages because it is bound to the Koran.
I'm curious to know how much Arabic you actually speak if you do not realize this.

I have been with my husband for nearly a decade. You've read a few posts on the internet from a man known to enjoy playfully (and occasionally deviously) eliciting thoughtful responses via intelligent debate.
Biased or not, I'm still in a far better position to judge this man.
You are already predictable. The answer to that is completely irrelevant and has no bearing on my expertise. It is also none of your business.Originally Posted by menj
No. You appear to be just another one of the mice to his cat's play mentality. I feel very sorry for you. You've already lost to him and will continue only to make yourself appear more foolish.Originally Posted by menj
Hah. I didn't miss it. Improving doesn't mean inventing. It's like finally deciding to add leather seats to a 2000 year old horse drawn cart.Originally Posted by menj
