I have always been fascinated by word manipulation, so I started this project as a personal challenge.

I manipulate Arabic words and transform them into their meaning, and I made a total of 40 illustrated words. Also, there are pronunciation of those words above every picture that will hopefully help you to learn something new!

Very informative. I love languages. Thanks for explaining the differences :) This would actually make a nice tattoo :)

The ح letter is a bit tricky as it doesn't have an equivalent in english, but best try would be: Hout.

My favourite Arabic word as it is also used to describe your tummy.

Too many horns for a gazelle. This is more a reindeer. Are reindeer classified as gazelles too?
