I need the phonetic pronunciation in Arabic for:

"God is the Lord which has shown us light.  Blessed is He that cometh in the name of the Lord."

Anyone?

In Christ,

Whoa, I will never complain about Greek ever again.  Arabic looks tough.

Yes, I have heard, correct me if I am wrong, the three hardest languages in the world is:

Chinese-Mandarin
Russian
Arabic

You think that is tough....at least Djrak wrote it in Arabic with English letters....try reading Arabic letters.... Grin Wink

Interesting about Chinese, as I grew up in an area with a fair amount of people from China.  As I understand it once you get used to the diferent pitches it is a fairly easy language and if you use pin-yin to write.  The real Chinese alphabet is the killer though.

Japenese alphabet is the most fun, you form words with combinations of sketches and symbols.

Thanks for the help.  I'm a second generation Arab, but I speak very little Arabic...I can't read it at all.  I'm all for using a majority of English in the services here in America, but a little Arabic every now and then is nice.

In Christ,

Michael

For sheer difficulty, I've heard that Finnish, Hungarian and Georgian are even tougher languages.

It depends on where you're coming from. These are three of the hardest for English speakers to learn, but they would be quite easy for a Cantonese, a Serb, and an Ethiopian to learn.

Finnish and Hungarian are both Finno-Ugric languages, and Georgian is practically an isolate, having only a few very small relatives. What they all have in common, though, along with most Caucasian languages and the Turkic languages, is that they are all highly agglutinative, and therefore extremely regular. They have few or no irregular verbs or nouns. For a speaker of an Indo-European language, they are going to be somewhat difficult simply because they work in a different way and have little shared vocabulary with IE languages, but looked at objectively they are some of the easier languages to learn. They don't have the stereotypical IE features of gender, multiple declensions, irregular conjugations, and sound mutations occurring when word endings change.
