Number System in Arabic and English: A Comparative Analysis

Mohamed.A | S. A. Shanavas [2]


Abstract: Unlike English and many other languages, Arabic has three numbers: singular, dual and plural. Dual are morphologically marked in Arabic whereas in English the number two plus plural is used to mark the dual. For example two cities, two buildings etc are used while in Arabic madiinataani binaa aani are used instead of ithnataa-mudn-in or ithnataaabniyat-in. In respect of number, Sanskrit is similar to Arabic.


Keywords: Number System, Arabic, Sanskrit
