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!

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

This type of guide can be usefull e.g in japanese, in arabic they have alphabet like latin, cyrilic so you only have to learn letters and sounds of the words (like Englishman and russian).

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