You don't have to do that sweety, I can do it as I go along. It may take me a while to remember these anyway. :)

"طماطم = tamatem = tomatoe"

I like it when Arabic sounds sooo close to the english. BTW- ana amreeki! No "E" on tomato on this side of the pond, mate. cheers!

Peace be with you all!

"طماطم = tamatem = tomatoe"

Tamatem :lol:

Is that official? We, Lebanese, say "banadura". Any Arabic-speaking members familiar with this term?

No "E" on my side of the pond either, however, when used in the plural, the E makes a guest appearance (tomatoEs). So the Brits may be onto something ;)

God bless.
