Outspoken Nothingness

Tomayetoes Tomaahtoes!


Why is it طوكيو and not توكيو ?
or صنداى and not سنداى (sundae)?
or صبواى and not سبواى ?
or طومي and طوني instead of تومي and توني ?

or واشنطن and not واشنتن even though واشنجتن would be more proper with the three dots under the ج but it's too confusing and looks scary :P

  • I guess arabic linguistics made it like that but if that makes you laugh then what about Kuwaiti slang when we say stuff like شوزن which means "shot-gun", or ٌٌاكسات as in "Axles" (automotive-wise)?

    It's complicated.
