Question

(Fus7a/Syrian dialect) - How do I say: "Seriously?/Are you for real?"

Lily W Lily W (0) on 29/12/14

Hi,

How do you express surprise and slight disbelief when someone tells you something?

For example:

"I heard that Ali broke his left leg yesterday."

Reply: "What! Seriously?/Are you kidding?/Are you for real?"

REQUEST:If possible, please add both Arabic letters and the translitteration in Latin letters. I would appreciate it if you could also add an audio file to your answer if possible. (In fus7a, and if you happen to also be a native (!) speak from Syria: also in the Syrian dialect). Any help is much appreciated!

Arabic fus7a translation for the above ecpressions:

ماذا تقول؟ هل أنت جاد؟ لابد أنك تمزح؟ هل هذا حقيقي؟

Unfortunately I'm not a Syrian native Speaker;I am Egyptian.

So the colloquial equivalents in Egyptian Arabic would be as follows:

بتقول ايه؟؟ بتتكلم جد؟؟؟ أنت أكيد بتهزر!!! دة حقيقي؟

Sorry for not being able to do the recording thing..little shy :)
